Thank You, Loving Father, for making us Your dear children in the waters of Baptism. You have cleansed us from sin and saved us from the power of the enemy as the death and resurrection of Your Son makes us and all things new.
As we live out our days as Jesus’ face to the world, help us be instruments of peace and reconciliation. May the lies of Satan never crowd out Your life-sustaining Word. For those who struggle with the visible activity of our God in the world, may we be mindful of our calling as humble witnesses of the faith and the presence of Christ among us.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Todd Hoeffs, of Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Winnipeg, for contributing CLWR’s prayer for the Second Sunday after Pentecost
