Tuesday July 20th, 2007 - Prayer of the Week on Romans 15:1-7

Let us pray to the Lord, Lord have Mercy.

O Lord You gave us a conscience to show us how to behave as Christians. You want us to nurture this conscience so we can see ourselves and others as You see. Help us to be patient and not be judgmental. When we will stand before You to be judged grant us forgiveness as we have forgiven others. May we not offend anyone by our churchly behavior causing them to sin. We pay in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Tuesday July 12th, 2007 - Prayer of the Week - Invocation given at the Illinois Freedom Run

Invocation given at the Illinois Freedom Run ( See June events )

O Lord of heaven and earth, the creator of the visible and invisible universe. You are the Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Eternal Father, and the Prince of Peace. Today we stand again before this wall of grief reading the ever growing list of names of our fallen heroes. These men and women who made the supreme act of love by laying down their lives of us. May they find eternal rest in Your heavenly kingdom with all the saints.

O God, we do not deserve what they have given us for we eat, drink and are merry while our men in women in uniform are sacrificing themselves for our freedom. We have forgotten to pray for them and for our enemies so that all hatred in Your name will be turned into love.

We humbly ask you today to intervene in this war in lands where you made you presence known and bring it to a just end. We pray for all those who grieve the loss of their loved ones. We weep with them and pray that all of us here and in our country will appreciate what they have given us.

We know that there will some day be a war that will end all wars. We hope and pray that we will be on the winning side and will rejoice when you return in Your glory for You are the father of the age to come. Amen.

Benediction

O Master send Your Holy Spirit upon us as we depart and protect us as we travel the highway of life. Bring us safely home so we can fulfill all of our petitions which are for the well being of our troops, the remembrance of our fallen heroes and their families and for this war to end. May the love of God the Father and the grace of the Holy Spirit be with all of you. Go in Peace.
