Welcome to a Gathering of EChurch@Wartburg
Here is our Order of Worship
The Collect of the Day link
you have broken the tyranny of sin
and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts
whereby we call you Father:
give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service,
that we and all creation may be brought
to the glorious liberty of the children of God;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
A Prayer for Trust by St. Ignatius of Loyola link
O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.
Scripture Reading: John 3:16 (NASB Bible Gateway)
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
LUTHERAN PRAYER FOR DISCERNMENT link
God of grace and glory,
You are the giver of all good and perfect gifts.
As we seek to know and do your will,
open our ears to Listen, our eyes to See,
our hearts to Love, our minds to Learn,
our lips to Speak, our hands to Serve.
You have walked with us in the wilderness, sheltered us in the storms,
and fed us in our hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Guide us on this journey of discernment, that your will would be made clear
to us, that your grace would abound, that your glory would be revealed;
in your holy name we pray.
A Methodist Blessing
Romans 5:13 link
May the God of hope
fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that you may abound in hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
