The Congregation at Prayer for the week of March 29, 2020

A Guide for Daily Meditation and Prayer beginning Sunday, March 29 (Lent 5/Judica)

Pray and confess aloud as much from the order of meditation and prayer as you are able or as your family size and ages dictate. Learn by heart the verse, catechism, and hymn of the week. 

Each morning at 8 am during the week and at our regular service times, you may join our congregation in prayer on our Facebook and YouTube channels. 

Psalm of the Week: 75

Verse: 2 Corinthians 12:9
[Jesus said,] “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Catechism: Commandments 4-10 (primary texts); Table of Duties—Of Civil Government: Romans 13:1-4
