Prayer of the Week

posted by Scot McKnight

O God, whose blessed Son came into the world that he might destroy the works of the devil and make us children of God and heirs of eternal life: Grant that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves as he is pure; that, when he comes again with power and great glory, we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

I am a 57 years old woman and was blessed with two boys, now men.
Educated them but now does not care about my well being. Please pray for me so that they can think of me and no that they have a mother, Hello will do if not support. Thanks

Well it sounds pretty, not biblical. Why wait? Do you not know, that once we have accepted Christ as our Savior He makes His home in us. He, the Holy Spirit, and the Father. And, if we truly commit to Him He begins changing us from that moment. Christian is to be Christ like. Unless we allow Him to do the work He has been sent to do, we will not have that great victory upon His return. Your prayer should be for living out His glory, His purity, His love, grace, and mercy each and everyday He has given us. Jesus taught everyone He came to one main message every time He began to preach. “The kingdom of God has come upon you.” When He has come to us and we receive Him then all He has for us of the kingdom is given us, the kingdom has come upon us. We can and should live this life from then on. We do not have to wait for His return to do so. In fact He expects us to do so. We being saved by His great grace and love are His kingdom. We represent His kingdom on earth before His final return. Yes, it is pretty, but falls short of His expectations.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
