Feast of St. Michael and all Angels

Everlasting God, You have ordained and constituted the service of angels and men in a wonderful order. Mercifully grant that, as Your holy angels always serve and worship You in heaven, so by Your appointment they may also help and defend us here on earth; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Credo, Terceiro Artigo, da Santificação

"Creio que por minha própria razão ou força não posso crer em Jesus Cristo, meu Senhor, nem vir a ele. Mas o Espírito Santo me chamou pelo evangelho, iluminou com seus dons, santificou e conservou na verdadeira fé. Assim como chama, congrega, ilumina e santifica toda a cristandade na terra, e em Jesus Cristo a conserva na fé verdadeira e única. Nesta cristandade perdoa a mim e a todos os crentes diária e abundantemente todos os pecados, e no dia derradeiro me ressuscitará a mim e a todos os mortos, e em Cristo me dará a mim e a todos os crentes a vida eterna. Isto é certissimamente verdade."

Keep me in faith

O gracious Lord, I thank you for providing signs and wonders which proclaim the truth about your plan for my rescue. Use these precious accounts about Jesus and his resurrection to not only bring me to faith, but to keep me in faith until I am taken to be with Jesus eternally. Amen.

Mark 16:6

"Don't be alarmed," [the angel] said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him."

Mark 16:6

It is an amazing and undeserved blessing to know what my living Savior has done for me, and to see the change he has brought about in me. I was once dead in my transgressions and sins, but now I am alive. I was once a bitter enemy at odds with God, but now I am at peace. I was once doomed to eternal punishment, but now I am forgiven. I was once without hope, but now I have confidence. I was once without direction, but now I have the Lord's never-failing guidance.

Sexta-feira Santa

"Verdadeiramente ele tomou sobre si as nossas enfermidades, e as nossas dores levou sobre si; e nós o reputávamos por aflito, ferido de Deus, e oprimido. Mas ele foi ferido por causa das nossas transgressões, e moído por causa das nossas iniquidades; o castigo que nos traz a paz estava sobre ele, e pelas suas pisaduras fomos sarados."

Isaías 53:4,5
Bíblia Sagrada

Oramos para que, como até aqui, o Senhor nos continue a abençoar a cada um e à sua Igreja, e nos permita manter fiéis e dedicados à sua Palavra e ao seu Reino!

Have mercy on us

O Christ, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world; have mercy on us.

We thank you for praying to the Father for our forgiveness, and for promising us Paradise.

O Christ, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world; have mercy on us.

We praise you for giving us loved ones, and for being forsaken by God so that we will never be forsaken.

O Christ, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world.

You finished all things for our salvation, and you committed your spirit to the Father.

Grant us your peace. Amen.

Martin Luther, LW 40

Even if God does not give what we pray for, still we should not doubt that he has heard our prayer. We should realize that instead of what we have asked he will give something better. Committing such requests to him, we ought not set time or measure for his answer.

Martin Luther, LW 40, 279.

Prayer as we celebrate Epiphany

God of glory, on the Twelfth Day of Christmas, we remember the appearance of your Son as the Savior of the nations. As the Magi came from afar, bearing gifts and worshiping the King, so let us also give him worship and praise! On this day when you showed your Gospel was meant for all nations, we pray that you would use your Word to call to faith many more people in distant lands, that they might join the Magi and us when we worship before your throne in heaven. Amen

Time to change

Lord, I come to you today as a new year lies before me. And I know there are some issues for which I cannot as yet make a decision, but there are some things I know it's time; some changes I need to make and now would be a great time. With your guidance from your spirit, with your strength, help me to make the changes I know I need to make. I desire to please you; I desire to honor and worship you with my life. Help me for now is the time to change. Jesus, I pray in your name, Amen.

A Prayer for Christmas

Lord God, heavenly Father, you sent your angels to tell lowly shepherds not to be afraid but instead to rejoice at the birth of the Savior, Christ the Lord. Drive all fear from our hearts, and lead us to rejoice at the news of our Lord Jesus, true God, begotten of the Father from all eternity, and true man, born of the Virgin Mary. Open our hearts to hear the choirs sing of all your promises, lead us in penitence to view the manger, and then let us return to our daily lives glorifying and praising God for all that we have heard and seen, in the name of that Christ child. Amen
