Friday December 24th, 2004 - Prayer of the Week before the Nativity.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy

O Lord Your birth came at a time of social and political turmoil. Your earthly parents were forced to take a long journey to be counted and pay their taxes. Attempts were made to kill You by civil authorities. We see You under attack today. Help us to do what is necessary to protect Your name for You are the prince of peace. Help us to witness to You under persecution and proclaim that You are the Lord Jesus Christ the incarnate Son of our living God. We pray in the name of the Father Son, and Holy Spirit Amen.

Bible question - In what practical way can you proclaim Jesus Christ during this Christmas season?

Monday December 13th, 2004 - Prayer of the Week on Luke 13: 22-30.

Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy

O Lord Your words about weeping and gnashing of teeth are frightening to us. We believe in You and are striving to develop a relationship with You. We do not want to be like those who are locked out because You do not know us. We do not want to be called "workers of iniquity". When we eat and drink and are being taught in Your presence, we are listening and trying to put Your teaching into practice. As we prepare to celebrate Your coming, open our minds and hearts to accept You as our savior so we may be among those who are first to enter into Your kingdom.

Bible Text - There shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out. Luke 13:28.

Bible question - To what extent does your past weeks activities and personal concerns reflect the priorities and values of God's kingdom or American society.

Monday December 6th, 2004 - Prayer of the Week on on the feast of St. Nicholas.

Rejoice, divine delight of the afflicted, the fervent advocate of those who suffer from injustice! And now, all-blessed Nicholas, never cease praying to Christ our God// for those who honor the high feast of your memorial with faith and love. (Hymn from the feast day service)

Bible Text - James 5: 16 - Confess your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The supplication of a righteous man has great power in its effects.

Bible question - How does this verse from the Epistle of James relate to the way we celebrate the feast of St. Nicholas.
