Pray that we will be mindful and responsive to those who have become more lonely, isolated or distant over the past weeks and months, and that they will feel more connected and comforted as we reach out to one another and discover new ways of being in community and relationship with each other.

                             Prayer Ventures, Living Lutheran, May 27, 2020

As “church”, we are called to love as Christ loved us- to serve our neighbor. As we come to the Festival of Pentecost, marking our call and commission, we are reminded of those who need the word of gospel hope.

11The greatest among you will be your servant.

                                                                        Matthew 23: 11

Will You Let Me Be Your Servant
ELW # 659

1 Will you let me be your servant,
let me be as Christ to you?
Pray that I may have the grace to
let you be my servant, too.

2 We are pilgrims on a journey,
we are trav’lers on the road;
we are here to help each other
walk the mile and bear the load.

3 I will hold the Christ-light for you
in the nighttime of your fear;
I will hold my hand out to you,
speak the peace you long to hear.

4 I will weep when you are weeping;
when you laugh I’ll laugh with you.
I will share your joy and sorrow
till we’ve seen this journey through.

5 Will you let me be your servant,
let me be as Christ to you?
Pray that I may have the grace to
let you be my servant, too.
