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.
