Call to Prayer
When I hide, speak tenderly.
When I turn away, lead me in a better way. When I fear, restore to me joy. When I am tempted, provide a way out.
When I want to give up, restore to me hope. Lead me, gracious Father, For the sake of Christ and His Kingdom. Amen.
Some were fools through their sinful ways,
and because of their iniquities suffered affliction;
they loathed any kind of food,
and they drew near to the gates of death.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
He sent out his word and healed them,
and delivered them from their destruction.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!
Read Acts 28
Prayer of Response
God, remind us now that your Spirit is in us, and that we are full of grace and power. When we are mocked, your favor remains. When falsely accused, our justification is sure. Christ is our confidence and hope. Today, because of him, we can go into the world. We can speak. We can know that our security rests, not in the work of our hands or in our fame but in the reality that we are your children. Grant us grace today, O God. Amen.
