Prayer for the Week

posted by Scot McKnight

Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Beautiful prayer, timely. “……our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found”. Yesterday I made a conscious decision to leave the people who have been contibuting very negative energy alone. I pray that they may see and accept my will to serve a God who gives me joy.

I thank God for the blood of Jesus that was applied to my life so the
things that were dear to me are now dead to me. THIS is a miracle and
my desires are now pleasing to God and HE IS GLORIFIED when we do well
in every area of our being.We have a new heart and the mind of Christ.
Our faith calls for the KINGDOM OF GOD AND hIS RIGHTEOUSNESS TO REIGN
AND RULE NOW IN ALL OUR CONCERNS.THE PRAYER ABOVE IS TIMELY AND TRUE
and will apply to all people in all nations covering the earth.Get
right with GOD AND Righteousness will exalt this nation but sin is
a reproach to us all.Amen

?My Brother?
In all the times we shared
I remember you were always there
When I cried as a child you held my hand
You were much more than a friend
You were my brother
Growing up I followed you
And you shared with me if you had one or two
Through the good and bad we had each other
Yes, you were there like no other
You were my brother
I believed, just like you did
In so many common things
Now bereaved, Time has come to pass
Your love and dignity remains
And my life will never be the same without you
Because you were my brother
Yes, you were my brother
Your purpose in life has been fulfilled
You fought the battle so
Courageous, brave and all uphill
A hero to me I honor you
Now celebrate your new life in heaven
Until we meet again
I will miss you my brother
Yes, you were my brother

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
