This Week's Congregational Prayer:
Jesus, we confess that often prefer passivity: reading and listening to the news, but doing nothing about it; seeing people in need, but not helping them; seeing the lost, but not sharing the gospel with them; seeing people deceived by sin, but not sharing the truth with them. Let us no longer sit around waiting for someone else to do something. Transform us to be people who see the needs of others, who care about these people, and who do something to help them, all for the glory of Jesus our Savior, who loved us and died for us. Amen.
