Welcome to a Gathering of EChurch@Wartburg
The TWW community would love to pray for you!
From St. Clement of Alexandria, (c. 150–215) link
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.
Lord, thou hast given us thy Word for a light to shine upon our path;
grant us so to meditate on that Word, and to follow its teaching,
that we may find in it the light that shines more and more until the perfect day;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Scripture Habakkuk 3:16-18 NIV
I heard and my heart pounded,
my lips quivered at the sound;
decay crept into my bones,
and my legs trembled.
Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity
to come on the nation invading us.
Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.

Benediction (Source unknown – early Scottish)
Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the shining stars to you,
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you, for ever.
