Lent Midweek Services

Posted on: February 9th, 2016 by Edward Lamberton

LentCrossFeatureJoin us for our Lent Midweek Services each Wednesday night at 7:30 PM. The six mid-week Lenten Services this year will explore The Lord’s Prayer: A Prayer for All Seasons, adapting the resources from Concordia Publishing House prepared by Rev. Steven H. Albers of Kirkwood, Missouri.

Jesus taught His Disciples this “model prayer” as was the practice of most teachers (as His forerunner John the Baptizer), who encouraged an active prayer life in their students. Not intended as a mantra for repetitive vocalization during meditation, popular among eastern faiths, but as an outline of principle concepts to keep in mind in our relationship with God.

Though for all seasons, we will look particularly at the following six prayer seasons:

  • February 10: Needing Forgiveness, Fifth Petition
  • February 17: Lifting Up the Lord, First Petition
  • February 24: Wondering Who’s in Control, Second Petition
  • March 1: Seeking God’s Will, Third Petition
  • March 8: Thanks for Simple Things, Fourth Petition
  • March 15: Standing Up to Evil, Sixth and Seventh Petitions

A dinner will be held at 6:15 each week. Please sign up in the Entry Hall or bring a dish to share.
