A prayer for today: O God, I ask your blessing upon our congregation as we begin a new season of worship, learning, and service.  Please bless our leaders, teachers, and co-workers in Christ with wisdom and love.  Show me what I can do to make my church more faithful and active in serving you.  Bless all who are sick or sad with your healing love, especially Chad Steenberg and the family of Emil Kalnins.  I pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
