EChurch@Wartburg – 10.13.18

Welcome to a Gathering of EChurch@Wartburg

The TWW community would love to pray for you!

Prayer to the Divine Tutor — St Clement of Alexandria (150–215)

Be kind to Your little children, Lord; that is what we ask of You as their Tutor, You the Father, Israel’s guide; Son, yes, but Father as well. Grant that by doing what You told us to do, we may achieve a faithful likeness to the Image and, as far as is possible for us, may find in You a good God and a lenient Judge.

May we all live in the peace that comes from You. May we journey towards Your city, sailing through the waters of sin untouched by the waves, borne tranquilly along by the Holy Spirit, Your Wisdom beyond all telling. Night and day until the last day of all, may our praises give You thanks, our thanksgiving praise You: You who alone are both Father and Son, Son and Father, the Son who is our Tutor and our Teacher, together with the Holy Spirit.

Prayer to God the Father — St Ambrose of Milan (337–397 AD)

O Lord, who has mercy upon all, take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me the fire of Your Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore You,
a heart to delight in You,
to follow and to enjoy You,
for Christ’s sake. Amen

Habakkuk 3:1-2″A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to Shigionoth. Lord, I have heard the report about You and I fear. O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years, In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.”

The Lord’s Prayer (traditional) : Taken from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, 1662

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.

My prayer for God’s blessings on you.

“Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them, The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace” (Num. 6:23b–26).  Amen

Go in peace and serve the Lord.

  1. I have always struggled with this, and I consider it, after so many years of being an evangelical a personal, moral, and worst of all human frailty. God wants warriors who overcome, who do not need, who get over it, who deal with it, who move on are efficient effective, dont show grief etc. Well anyway. What I see God working in and through humanity like:

    What I was taught, no what I had shoved into my soul (if I ever had one) Long story and how God views humanity and how we totally disgust Him.

    I have personally worked with people who had the strength of 18 years old and the cognitive ability of an 18-month-old individual, may I humbly suggest Pastor Washer does not understand human development and also for every one person that fought with Hitler, there were 100 thousand + that fought against him. I cant say how this teaching makes one crazy.

  2. brian,

    I had a quick look at the second clip. The first thing that came to mind was: Why is he talking in that silly voice?

    That is what a totally depraved voice sounds like. He cannot choose otherwise.
