This Week's Congregational Prayer:
Lord, Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer, I humbly bow, honoring you with my respect and awe.  You know how my thoughts can stray and go awry, when I am weak and give in to temptation.  There are so many images and messages I see and hear that cloud my mind.  Forgive me, Lord.  I know better.  Help me to be sincere in my faith, that my thoughts and actions would reflect the truth of scripture.  Empower our church to be a beacon of light and hope, strengthening discipleship, that we might share the gospel of Good News.  In Christ, I pray.  Amen.
