there is much to fear in this world.
Satan is running around
trying to lead us astray through false worship.
He is trying to drag us down into hopelessness.
At times Satan succeeds
and thus paralyzes us with fear,
so much so,
that the Gospel is not proclaimed.
But we ask that You may send Your Holy Spirit
to teach us
and remind us
of the victory we have through faith in Jesus Christ.
Show us the cross.
Show us the empty tomb.
Show us Jesus.
May we see the life we have in You
and know that death has been defeated.
May we rejoice in You
and thus share this Joy with others.
And in the end,
may You and You alone be glorified.
Now may the words of my mouth
and the meditations of our hearts
be acceptable to You,
through Christ Jesus our Lord,
The Pastor -|—
