A Message from Pastor
June 10, 2020
“Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us…..”
Psalm 62:8 NRSV
Prayer is a “running conversation with God” as Mother Teresa once said and that prayer is “as necessary as the air, as the blood in our bodies, to keep us alive – to keep us alive to the grace of God.”
I believe we can lay havoc to our conversations with God if we don’t create a daily discipline of speaking to God. Our prayer life will not flourish if our prayer life is not tended.
It’s not rocket science in the art of prayer. It’s simply speaking the truth and from your heart. Yes, sometimes we don’t know what to say but allow the Spirit to speak for you. (Romans 8:26)
Paul has several examples through Scripture on praying to God. Here are some scriptures of Paul’s prayers (Romans 1:8-10, 2 Corinthians 12:7-9, Ephesians 1:15-23, Ephesians 3:14-21, Philippians 4:23, Colossians 1:3-14). Please pray and pray often.
June 7 sermon: Scripture used was Psalm 8. Speaks of God’s creation. This past Sunday was Trinity Sunday. As God is three in one (God, Son, Holy Spirit) you and I consist of body, soul and spirit. The sermon shared how we as folks of The United Methodist Church when we join promise to be faithful in our attendance, service, gifts and witness. That promise is part of our commitment to the church and to each other in living out our faith in the church.
Scriptures for Sunday June 14: Genesis 18:1-18, 21:1-7; Psalm 100; Romans 5:1-8, Mathew 935-10:23.
