May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for the 7th Sunday after Trinity: You are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, (Eph 2:19 NIV)
A collect for the 7th Sunday after Trinity: O God, whose never-failing providence orders all things both in heaven and on earth, we humbly implore You to put away from us all hurtful things and to give us those things that are profitable for us; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. (Pastoral Companion 594)
If you are called to preach this weekend, may the triune God give you joy and strength, 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)
