The Call to Prayer

I will call upon God, and the Lord will deliver me. In the evening, in the morning, and at noonday, I will complain and lament, and he will hear my voice. He will bring me safely back . . . God, who is enthroned of old, will hear me. Psalm 55:17ff

The Request for Presence

Be pleased, O God, to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me. Psalm 70:1

Scripture Passage

John 1:9-14


Why do you think people rejected Jesus then, and many reject Him now? Have you received Jesus, and if so, how is being his “child” a joy to you today?

The Prayer for the Week

Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
