Lord, Hear Our Prayers
As we ponder today, as we feel compassion for Japan, as we listen to the overwhelming conflicts in the world, our aware of the battles in our daily lives, or hear of the pain and sufferings of others, we must pray, pray, pray and then pray somemore. The evening prayers are so applicable.
Without you we can do nothing.
By your Spirit help us to know what is right and
and to be eager in doing your will.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever
James 4: 7-10
Submit to God: resist the devil and he will take flight.
Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners: purify your hearts, you backsliders.
Begin to lament, to mourn, and to weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning
and your joy into sorrow. Be humbled in the sight of the Lord and he will raise you on high.
Good Master, teach us to love you in our neighbor,
-and in serving them to serve you.
