Scripture  Isaiah 40:28–31 Michelle Sawunyama

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young will fall exhausted; but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Sermon Jennifer Nevdahl

Prayers of the People London Luttrell

As we grow in relationship with you and with one another, we offer our prayers to you, O God.

May the church be ever challenged to lead with love, we pray to you, O God:  Hear our prayer.

May we value the beauty of creation by carefully tending to the Earth, we pray to you, O God:  Hear our prayer.

May students and teachers feel your presence as a new school year filled with challenges begins, we pray to you, O God:  Hear our prayer.

May we model love and respect for our neighbors, we pray to you, O God:  Hear our prayer.

May we support those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit; fill us with your Holy Spirit so that we may share each other’s burdens, we pray to you, O God:  Hear our prayer.

Accept our thankfulness and praise as we remember all those who now reign with you in glory.  Give us the will to model your heavenly community here on earth, in the name of Jesus Christ.  Amen.
