Sunday Scripture & Prayer Requests

First Sunday in Lent

Christ in the Wilderness, Ivan Kramskoi, 1872,
Tretyakov Gallery, Russia. [PD-US]


The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert, 
and he remained in the desert for forty days,
tempted by Satan.
He was among wild beasts,
and the angels ministered to him.

After John had been arrested, 
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

Mark 1:12-15

Please join us in praying for the United States--and the world--during the current rise in Coronavirus cases. Pray for the sick and suffering, for businesses and schools to remain open, for people to be able to work and for our economy to prosper.

We are so grateful for all of you—for your friendship and your support! 

May the Lord bless you and your families and keep you safe.     

Let us know if you've been impacted by the recent storms. We've been praying for all who have been without power and water...and for the entire state of Texas!  Also we've been praying for those blanketed with snow and for the areas devastated by tornadoes. 

Stay safe, dear friends!

  1. I love these Sunday reminders of who we are, that we're children of God, bound by faith, hope and love! Thank you, Debby! When I think of what Jesus did, I'm gobsmacked... but then, He's God. He's supposed to do big things! But then his cousin John... standing for the faith. Being killed for the faith. The power surrounding them from the government to temple leaders who feared the loss of power.

    And we see the same thing being played out today because so many humans lust for power or sex or money.

    And yet we stand firm in our faith and sisterhood and brotherhood.

    Because that's exactly who we are.

  2. I admit that sometimes I take who I am in Christ for granted, but we should always be gobsmacked! What a great word. To be freed from sin and assured of our eternity should always make us fearless. Thanks for that reminder.

  3. Ruthy and Glynis, I'm agreeing with both of you.

    The painting of Christ in the Wilderness is haunting and reminds me how much Christ suffered for ME...so I could have Eternal Life. I am so NOT worthy of his love!

  5. Godsmacked!

    I wince as I can feel again being slapped in the face by the bishop during my confirmation!

    We would sing "Onward Christian Solders" each morning at the start of the class day -- warriors in our faith.

    Give me that old time religion!

    Glory be!

    The seasons may come and go but God is always in season.

    Godsmacked!

    It will wake you up and show you the way.
