Partakers Friday Prayers
16th June 2017
We pray together and when Christians pray together, including across the internet and from different times, different nations, different churches and different denominations – that reveals Church unity!
I am an empty vessel that needs to be filled.
My Lord, fill it.
I am weak in the faith;
I am cold in love;
warm me and make me fervent,
that my love may go out to my neighbour.
I do not have a strong and firm faith;
at times I doubt and am unable to trust you altogether.
O Lord, help me.
Strengthen my faith and trust in you.
In you I have sealed the treasure of all I have.
I am poor;
you are rich and came to be merciful to the poor.
I am a sinner; you are upright.
With me, there is an abundance of sin;
in you is the fullness of righteousness.
Therefore I will will remain with you,
of whom I can receive,
but to whom I may not give.
(A prayer of Martin Luther)
