Wednesday Connection – 11/11/2020

Our community is still processing the enormity of a global pandemic, an election, and the many ups and downs that come with everything else in our lives. There is grief, joy, fear, relief, apprehension. As a community, we bring all these things to the table together and take courage in knowing that God is with us, and our community is supporting us through it all. In my sermon last week, I nearly included a particular prayer that has helped me through times of great uncertainty. I omitted it for time’s sake, but offer it here now, in hopes that it may bring you comfort just like it has brought me. 

The Lutheran Prayer of Good Courage

Lord God,
you have called your servants
to ventures of which we cannot see the ending,
by paths as yet untrodden,
through perils unknown.
Give us faith to go out with good courage,
not knowing where we go,
but only that your hand is leading us
and your love supporting us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

For those of you who like music, here is a beautiful version of the same prayer:

In Peace,

Pastor Amanda McGlynn
