EChurch@Wartburg: 03/21/2020: Wade Burleson: Set Your Mind on Things Above


A prayer for Lent link

In the darkness of sin and its death, we cry to You, O Lord.
Open our ears by Your Word, our minds by Your Spirit, and our hearts by Your grace,
that we may know and be thankful for all the blessings You have given to us in Christ,
our Lord, especially the gifts of forgiveness, life and salvation.
Strengthen us in faith, that we may serve You with all our body, mind, soul and strength.
Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

A prayer for this time link

Defended by Your grace, we ask You, O Lord,
to provide us with good and faithful leaders
who will preserve the precious gift of liberty and protect the lives of our citizens.
Give them special wisdom, and help them to work in harmony in the midst of this pandemic.
Bless the members of our armed forces, and protect them as they defend us.
Grant Your blessing to all emergency and medical workers
who continue to come to our aid in times of great need.
Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

Scripture: Colossians 3:1-4 NIV

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.


Benediction link

Remember you are God’s beloved. The Holy Spirit lives in you.
Christ’s compassion shines forth in what you do.
Live as those who know and have experienced God’s goodness.
Go now in peace.
