As Jesus teaches us how to pray, he encourages us to pray about spiritual priorities and to be confident that he will answer.
Sermon on Luke 11 preached at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church by Pastor Aaron Strong.
O Lord, your ears are always open to the prayers of your humble servants, who come to you in Jesus’ name. Teach us always to ask according to your will that we may never fail to obtain the blessings you have promised; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
The Word of God is the one thing needful. Life is full of distractions, but followers of Jesus know how to balance busy lives with time spent in the Word, the source of life.
Sermon on Genesis 18:1-14 preached at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church by Pastor Daniel Bondow.
Almighty God, we thank you for planting in us the seed of your Word. By your Holy Spirit help us to receive it with joy and to bring forth fruits in faith and hope and love; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
