Sunday November 28th, 2004 - Prayer of the Week on Eph 5.

Let us Pray to the Lord.

O Lord You have given us clear instructions on what it means to live a Christian life. We are to refrain from all filthiness, sex outside of marriage, pornography, lust and any activity which will grieve the Holy Spirit with whom we have been sealed. We are tempted by the decadent society in which we live. We are like those who lived in Ephesus and have been drawn to activities of which we are ashamed. We beg for forgiveness and ask for strength to stand up under temptation and to defend our faith against those who ridicule it. Help us to remember that a life of corruption will lead to both our physical and spiritual death. We pray in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

Bible Text - Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, even as Christ also loved you, and gave himself up for us, an offering and a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But fornication, and all impurity, or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting among the saints; Be sure of this, that no fornicator, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Eph. 5: 1 - 5

Bible question. Why will immoral, impure or greedy people be unable to inherit the kingdom of heaven?

Tuesday November 23rd, 2004 - Prayer of the Week on the feast of Mary's entry into the temple.

Let us Pray to the Lord.

O Lord You made Your presence known to Moses in the burning bush, to David through the ark of the covenant, to Solomon through the temple in Jerusalem and to us through Your Holy Mother. As we celebrate her entry into the temple we give thanks and commit ourselves to being generous in our giving. As the great prophets built the temple of old so we pray that we can build in our hearts Your new temple of the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit Amen

Bible text - Ex. 38: And he made a screen for the door of the Tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the embroiderer; And he made the laver of brass, and the base thereof of brass, of the mirrors of the ministering women that ministered at the door of the tent of meeting. And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the tent of meeting, and the brazen altar, and the brazen grating for it, and all the vessels of the altar, Thus was finished all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting: and the children of Israel did according to all that Jehovah commanded Moses; so did they.

Bible question. How are we to understand the role of women in the Church based on Mary's entry into the temple the verses from Exodus 38

Thursday November 18th, 2004 - Prayer of the Week on Luke 10: 25- 37

Let us Pray to the Lord.

O Lord You ask us to bring our tithes and offering to Your Holy Temple on Sunday so that Your house may be full. When we fill Your house with love it overflows with love for our neighbors who are poor and in need. May we all be good Samaritans and give joyfully and not out of necessity. You Love a cheerful giver and one who gives abundantly for you promised you would return to us more than what we give. We pray in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit Amen.

Bible question - From the parable of the good Samaritan what does the message "you will live" mean to you.

Thursday November 7th, 2004 - Prayer of the Week on stewardship

Let us Pray to the Lord.

O Master, Lord our God, Who has commanded that every man bring to You, "Your own of Your own," granting to them a reward of Your eternal good things, and Who graciously accepted the offering of the widow according to her means: Accept that which is now offered by Your servants and grant these to be placed in Your eternal treasuries. Grant to them an abundance of Your earthly good things, together with all things profitable to them. For blessed is Your name and most-glorified is Your Kingdom: of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
