Lord, in our time
how many TV programs and movies
show the destruction of our world
through intergalactic or local
forces fighting each other.
Young people don’t feel secure.
Lord, give wisdom to older folks
so that they share the good news
of your kingdom in a meaningful way
with the younger generation.
Grandparents can tell real stories
of faith working in their lives.
Help us, Lord, to share our faith
by word and deed. Amen.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, “The one who is righteous will live by faith.”
Hymn: Lord, Speak to Me
