May you have a very blessed Sunday and have time to meditate on the watchword for this week: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” (Heb 3:15 NIV)
Collect for Sexagesima: O God, mercifully hear our prayers and having set us free from the bonds of our sins deliver us from every evil; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
If you are called to preach, may the triune God give you joy and strength, energy and wisdom, knowledge and insight – and the true words and pictures to preach his holy will faithfully according to his most precious revelation of his will and promises in both the Old and New Testament! However if you are not preaching, but listening – then listen as if God is talking to you + His precious gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16 NIV)
