Prayer for St. Lukes

The church is a hospital for sinners, not a rest home for saints

Almighty and everliving God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our prayers for this parish family. Lord, we are blessed by You among all nations and people of this world – preserve us so as not to take Your grace for granted. Quicken our hearts to share with our neighbor Your love for them and give us strength to boldly invite them to join us in worship and study of You. We pray all this through the might of Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
