Hope in the Midst of Transition

Passage: Matthew 13:24-43

Preacher: Rev. Joanne S. Martindale, Presbytery of the Redwoods

Series: Lectionary

Category: Lectionary


Household Prayer: Morning

Dear God, as I begin this day I renew my commitment to live as an agent of your reconciling love. Keep my actions holy, my thoughts blameless, and my intentions irreproachable.  Let me be firm in the hope promised by the gospel, that my life may bear witness to Jesus Christ.

Household Prayer: Evening

Lord Jesus, the labors of the day are over and the evening rest begins. If I have been busy with too many things, return my thoughts to what is needful. At last, let me know the better part you have promised will not be taken away, that I may sleep in your peace and awaken with renewed attentiveness to your presence. Amen.
