This Week's Congregational Prayer:
Lord and Redeemer, O how powerful and true are your scriptures! I cannot understand how the Israelites continued to do evil in your eyes. How could they? Over and over and over. How? Why? (Pause) Yet, who am I? Haven’t I done the same at times? Thank you, O God, for your faithfulness! Thank you for providing a way out of the evil, away from temptation, through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Renew me, fill me with grace, that I would be even more steadfast in my devotion to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
