Mon, 28 Jan 2002 Prayer of the Week on Col.3: 4-14)

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord the sign of the times seem to reveal Your imminent return. We pray that when You return we will reflect Your glory. In our baptism you put to death in us the evil spirits of fornication, uncleanness, and evil desire. Yet these passions still haunt us. Give us the power to overcome anger, wrath, use of filthy language and all forms of dissension and divisions so that we can be one in Your Body as Your elect living in kindn ess, humility and love. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

Biblical text-When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. Col.3:4-14

January 23, Prayer of the Week for Sanctity of Life

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son, Who is in the bosom of the Father, True God, source of life and immortality, Light of Light, Who has come into the world to enlighten it; You were pleased to be conceived in the womb of the Virgin Mary, for the salvation of our souls by the power of Your All-Holy Spirit. O Master, Who has come that we might have life more abundantly, we ask You to enlighten the minds and hearts of those blinded to the truth that life begins at conception, and that the unborn are already in the womb adorned with Your image and likeness. Enable us to guard, cherish and protect the lives of all those who are unable to care for themselves, for You are the Bestower of Life, bringing each person from non-being into being, sealing each person with divine and infinite love. Be merciful, O Lord, to those who, through ignorance or willfulness, affront Your divine goodness and providence through the evil act of abortion. May they, and all of us, come to the light of Your Truth and glorify You, the Giver of Life, together with your Father and Your All-Holy and Life-giving Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

January 7th, Prayer of the week on Mark 1: 4 -11

Let us Pray to the Lord. Lord have Mercy.

O Lord, today we celebrate Your manifestation to us. You have washed us in the waters of Holy Baptism. We have become enlightened and You are filling us with Your Holy Spirit. Your cousin John speaks for us when he said he was not worthy to unloosen Your sandal straps. As we begin this New Year we pray that You will inspire us to become better Orthodox Christians so that we can offer to the next generation what you have given us. For we know that we will have to answer for what we do at Your judgment seat. We pray in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
