Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, July 28, 2013:

We want to learn how to pray, and our prayers have many shapes. Jesus’ model prayer shapes our own and leads us to a more full realization of God’s presence in our lives and in the world–a vision shared by Paul as he proclaims Christ’s new day. Come worship with us on Sunday with Holy Communion at St. Peter’s at 9:00am and at Messiah at 10:30am. Sunday School classes meet at Messiah at 9:15am and at St. Peter’s at 10:15am. Prayer of the Day  Almighty and ever-living God, you are always more ready to hear than we are to pray, and you gladly give more than we either desire or deserve. Pour upon us your abundant mercy. Forgive us those things that weigh on our conscience, and give us those good things that come only through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
