May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this 19th Sunday after Trinity: Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise. (Jer 17:14 KJV)
Allmighty God and Fathe, you are the safeguard of all that trust in you. Grant us your bounteous mercy, that we may be healed in body and soul and give you thanks from all our heart; 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)
