Three Petitions for Worship This Sunday

Here are three petitions we'll be including the Prayers of the Church during morning worship at Living Water Lutheran Church this coming Sunday, June 27. Feel free to make the prayers your own.

Gracious, almighty God, You have dominion over all things. We thank You that You hear our prayers offered in Jesus’ name. Above all, we thank You that through the crucified and risen Jesus, You have done all necessary both to save us from sin and death and to make us Your holy people. In all circumstances, help us to take refuge and hope in Christ alone. Let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, have mercy.

Gracious Lord, the world with its worldly thoughts, ideologies, and prescriptions crowds around us, making it difficult for us to see the Truth only revealed in Jesus, the Way, Truth, and the Life. Forgive us for the ways we allow the devil, the world, and our own sinful natures to lead us to bitterness, suspicion, envy, or the ancient human desire to be You. Forgive us too for sometimes thinking that Your Church is something that we must control rather than seeing it for what it is, the body of Christ, Your eternal people, to which, as disciples of Jesus, we are all mutually accountable. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit so that in all we say, do, think, and pray, we seek to honor Christ alone. Let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord of the nations, we lift up to You for guidance and encouragement all the leaders of the world and of this country that we might lead peaceful lives. Protect those in military service from danger, harn, and temptations. Let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, have mercy.

The New Testament Book of Galatians, Part 8

This study somehow was cut off before we were done tonight. We'll look forward to picking things back up when we resume on Facebook Live next Tuesday evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time. God bless you.
