Scripture and Prayer on Tuesday, August 4, 2020

Pastor David reads John 1:1-18 and offers a prayer from Joseph Hart:

How good is the God we adore,
Our faithful, unchangeable Friend!
His love is as great as his power,
And knows neither measure nor end!
‘Tis Jesus, the First and the Last,
Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home:
We’ll praise him for all that is past,
We’ll trust him for all that’s to come.

Worship Service on Sunday, August 2, 2020

This week’s service focuses on the theme of “struggle.” Pastor David’s sermon comes from Genesis 32:22-32, where Jacob wrestles with God.

Unfortunately, our service was not able to be streamed live due to a bandwidth problem with our internet provider. (Just one more struggle, right?)

Scripture and Prayer on Monday, July 27, 2020

Pastor David reads Matthew 27:24-31 and offers a prayer from Treasury of Devotion:

O innocent Jesus, who with wonderful submission was for our sakes condemned to die: Grant that we may bear in mind that our sins were the false witnesses; our blasphemies, backbitings, and evil speakings were the cause of your accepting with gladness the sentence of the impious judge. O may this thought touch our hearts and make us hate those sins which cause your death.

Scripture and Prayer on Friday, July 24, 2020

Pastor David reads Joshua 9:22-10:15 and offers a prayer from the hymn writer Isaac Watts:

O God, our Help in ages past,
Our Hope for years to come,
Our Shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal Home!

Beneath the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defense is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,
Or Earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
To endless years the same.

Thy Word commands our flesh to dust:
“Return, ye sons of men!”
All nations rose from earth at first
And turn to earth again.

A thousand ages in Thy sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

The busy tribes of flesh and blood,
With all their cares and fears,
Are carried downward by the flood,
And lost in following years.

Time, like an ever rolling stream,
Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten as a dream
Dies at the opening day.

Like flowery fields the nations stand,
Pleased with the morning light;
The flowers beneath the mower’s hand
Lie withering ere ’tis night.

O God our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while life shall last,
And our eternal Home.

Grant us, merciful God, knowledge and true understanding of your word, that we may know what your will is, and also may show in our lives those things that we do know; so that we may not only be knowers of your word, but also doers of your word, through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
