This Week's Congregational Prayer:
Dear Father, the Apostle Paul wrote that our present sufferings are not worth comparing to the glories that will be revealed in us. Let the hope of these words fill every nook and every cranny of our hearts, that we might be able to live our lives now in the light of the glory you will bestow upon us. Fill us with hope, Lord, that our lives might be filled with joy, and that our praise might always be directed toward you. Amen.
