May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this 18th Sunday after Trinity: And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. (1Jo 4:21 KJV)
Dear Father in heaven, you have revealed your love to us in Jesus Christ. Grant us your Holy Spirit, that we may love you with our whole heart and our neighbours as ourselves; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
If you are called to preach this weekend, may the triune God give you joy and strength, enthusiasm 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)
