Welcome to Our Gathering of EChurch@Wartburg





Here Is Our Order of Worship

The Trinitarian Prayer of John Stott link

Good morning heavenly Father, good morning Lord Jesus, good morning Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father I worship you as the creator and sustainer of the universe.
Lord Jesus, I worship you, Saviour and Lord of the world.
Holy Spirit, I worship you, sanctifier of the people of God.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live this day in your presence and please you more and more.
Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you.
Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life:
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Holy, blessed and glorious Trinity, three persons in one God, have mercy upon me.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit Regarding Anxiety

"O Holy Spirit, give me stillness of soul in you.
Calm the turmoil within, with the gentleness of your peace.
Quiet the anxiety within, with a deep trust in you.
Heal the wounds of sin within, with the joy of your forgiveness.
Strengthen the faith within, with the awareness of your presence.
Confirm the hope within, with the knowledge of your strength. 
Give fullness to the love within, with an outpouring of your love.
O Holy Spirit, be to me a source of light, strength and courage
so that I may hear your call ever more clearly
and follow you more generously."

Scripture Reading:  Luke 7:36-39 (NASB Bible Gateway)

Parable of Two Debtors

And Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he replied, “Say it, Teacher.”  “A moneylender had two debtors: one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.  When they were unable to repay, he graciously forgave them both. So which of them will love him more?”  Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.” And He said to him, “You have judged correctly.”  Turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.  You gave Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet.  You did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume.  For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.”  Then He said to her, “Your sins have been forgiven.”  Those who were reclining at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this man who even forgives sins?”  And He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

Prayer of St. Benedict link

O gracious and holy Father,
give us wisdom to perceive you,
diligence to seek you,
patience to wait for you,
eyes to behold you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
and a life to proclaim you;
through the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, our Lord.


Phillippians 4:6-7 NASB (Bible Gateway)

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Amen.

    @ Mykingdomforahorse:

    We are so glad you are here. I am not able to view that video (I think it isn't accessible to those outside your friend group on Facebook). Love the song Just Give Me Jesus. Is there any way to view in on YouTube which is accessible to everyone?

    “We eat da children of righteousness?”


    Precious Wartburg Reader,


      When we are transferred by the blood of Jesus from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of God’s dear Son, we become children of righteousness.



    This is our Heavenly Farther’s doing and this is ‘good news’ indeed!


    Our new life in Christ by the precious blood of Jesus, has made us new creatures in Christ, citizens of heaven and the sons and daughters of God. 


    …and with that ‘focus’ in mind, God Almighty has great plans.


    These children of God, over time, learn that Our Heavenily Father lets absolutely NO ‘evil’ go w-i-t-h-o-u-t ‘factoring it’ into “His Plans”(TM) for the creation of His Son’s kingdom, which he (Jesus) shall receive graciously from His hand.

    Ode to Joy!


    Why share this you may ask?


    In joy I seek that fruit that which abounds to your account,

    Gloria in excelsis Deo!


    Phil 4:19
    ‘θεὸς theos…’

    Where is the word “brokenness” in the Bible? I think its high time for people to stop preaching modern pop-psychology and open a Bible for a change!!!!!!!

    I know that many of us open our Bible all the time-not for a change.

    However, the Bible does not promise cures for mental illness. Modern Psych treatments have offered effective treatment for depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, etc. The Bible does not offer cures for diabetes, cancer, etc. God does not promise to heal us from any of these in this lifetime.

    Did you know that JB Phillips, who knew his Bible inside and out spent much of his life battling depression and going in and out of psych institutions?

    Finally, your comment sounds like you are angry. Do you know why?
