Pray for God to send the Spirit into our midst and renew humanity and all creation

                                          Prayer Ventures, Living Lutheran, June 5, 2020.

And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Mt. 28:20).
The focus on this passage is typically, and probably understandably, the “great commission.” But on this day, the words that offer the strength and encouragement for which I long are what I would call the “great promise.” Jesus is with us… in our heartbrokenness and grief, in our protests and stands, in our fear and uncertainty, in our confession and repentance. Jesus is with us. And as long as Jesus is with us, we will neither lose hope nor give up.

                                                      In the Meantime, David Lose, June 4, 2020

Let us pray. Almighty God, by our baptism into the death and resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ, you turn us from the old life of sin. Grant that we who are reborn to new life in him may live in righteousness and holiness all our days, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
