Remember the Sabbath day. Call the Sabbath a delight. This is the Lord’s day, and the Lord will do for us what the Lord does: feed us, forgive us, help and heal us. Rejoice at all the wonderful things God is doing.
Prayers of Intercession
Rooted in Christ and rising to serve, let us pray for the church, the world, and all in need.
1) Gracious God, we praise you on this Sabbath day for the wonderful place we call our church home. We come hungry for spiritual food and in need of your healing and blessing - for us and our church family. We praise you for the cool temperatures we are enjoying in your sanctuary and in many of our homes and pray for those who are suffering in oppressive conditions. Bless our ministries that offer food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted. May our light rise in the darkness and let the glory of the Lord rise among us. Hear us, O God. Your mercy is great.
