Now, this is what the Lord says,Isaiah 43: 1 (Watchword for the 6th Sunday after Trinity)
the one who created you,
and formed you:
“Don’t be afraid, for I will protect you.
I call you by name, you are mine.”
Almighty God, beloved heavenly Father, through Holy Baptism You have made us Your children and heirs of Your kingdom, grant us Your Holy Spirit, so that we, having died to sin, may live faithfully in a new life with Jesus Christ, who together with You and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
Waken my heart, O Lord, my God; make my heart watchful to serve thee and alert to thy command. Thou hast created us full of trouble; thou hast made us strangers in this world.
Trouble me with the smallness of my work. Trouble me with the greatness of thy command. Trouble me with my unholiness and my slowness to obey. Trouble me with the time running out and every lost hour. Trouble me with my sins and the sins of all men. Trouble me with the troubles of thy church which are the work of men. Trouble me, and make me to watch continually for thy judgement. Trouble me, O Lord, and let me keep my faith in the midst of my trouble. Let me go forth desiring the coming of thy glory. Let me go forward; for thy glory shall be revealed. I thank thee that my work ends and thy work begins. Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief. Amen.Dobberstein Pg.49
God´s Holy Word for Saturday in the 6th week after Trinity
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named. I pray that according to the wealth of his glory he will grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner person, that Christ will dwell in your hearts through faith, so that, because you have been rooted and grounded in love, you will be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and thus to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you will be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Now to him who by the power that is working within us is able to do far beyond all that we ask or think, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.From St. Paul´s epistle to the Ephesians 3:14-21
We laud + praise His holy name: God Father, Son + Holy Ghost +
1 We know that Christ is raised and dies no more.
Embraced by death, he broke its fearful hold,
and our despair he turned to blazing joy.
2 We share by water in his saving death.
Reborn, we share with him an Easter life
as living members of a living Christ.
3 The Father’s splendor clothes the Son with life.
The Spirit’s power shakes the church of God.
Baptized, we live with God, the Three in One.
4 A new creation comes to life and growsJohn B. Geyer
as Christ’s new body takes on flesh and blood.
The universe, restored and whole, will sing:
