Welcome to a Gathering of EChurch@Wartburg
Here is our Order of Worship
Prayer in Time of Need link
Almighty God, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
come to my help and deliver me from this difficulty that besets me
I believe Lord, that all trials of life are under Your care
and that all things work for the good of those who love You.
Take away from me fear, anxiety and distress.
Help me to face and endure my difficulty with faith, courage and wisdom.
Grant that this trial may bring me closer to You for You are my rock and refuge,
my comfort and hope, my delight and joy. I trust in Your love and compassion.
Blessed is Your name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
Prayer of Benedict of Nursia (c. 480–547) 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.
Scripture Reading: Luke 11:22-37 (NASB Bible Gateway)
A Closing Prayer link
To whom can we turn
when we stumble from the path,
and this world challenges
all that we hold dear?
To whom can we turn
when the walls that we have built
begin tumbling down
leaving us helpless?
In you, O Lord
will we take refuge,
our strong fortress,
the rock upon which we stand,
our faithful God.

Me thinks you’re a NeoCalvinist. No Jesus or the Holy Spirit showed up.
Appreciate what you do here, Velour. Thank you. Will pray.
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words, CHRISTIANE. It is my small gift to our community.
I always appreciate that I can count on you to pray for everyone’s needs and to join me in thanking the Lord for answered prayers/praises.
Strictly speaking, We were all here together!
Happy Father’s Day! A prayer for all the Dads out there and those of any gender who find themselves in the “Dad” role to a young person.
The subheading “Get Ready” popped this up in the memory of this Eschatology Burnout —
A little Temptations from the early Sixties:
I have been ministered to by these Sunday reflections, and copied one of the prayers down so that I can continue to turn it over in my mind this week.
Grateful thanks for the labor of love that this represents.
Your comment just made my day!
A prayer to come into silence so that we can begin to hear again the voices of those it is all too easy to block out:
May God help us to be drawn to the ones who are most vulnerable and most helpless in our land, so that we can recognize, in their suffering, the Person of Our Lord and we will not be tempted ‘to look away’.
In your great mercy, hear us O Lord.
