Trinity 16 2020
Something to think about
Think about the different styles, shapes of church that you may have worshipped in, how were they different from St. Mary’s?
What part of Paul’s prayer touches you most?
Paul went to prison; how far would you be prepared to go for the Gospel?
What has been the most challenging part of your Christian journey?
When have you felt Jesus’ compassion strongest in your life?
Do you believe that without Jesus we are dead, if so why?
A prayer for Trust
Lord, You are the God of peace and love
in Whom I place my trust.
Give me a peaceful heart that rests in You and a loving spirit that pours fourth Your love to others.
Lord, You are the God of comfort and rest
in Whom I put my hope.
Give me a heart that abides in You so that Your comfort may stream through me to others who need comfort and strength.
Lord, You are the God of hope and joy
in Whom I stand secure.
Give me a spirit of devotion that worships only You so that I may be a worthy witness that points to Jesus,
for in Him is all peace and love
and comfort and rest and hope and joy and love.
I place my trust in You, Lord.
