MORAVIAN DAILY TEXT
Watchword for the week – Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
Sunday, May 21 – Acts 1:6-14; Psalm 68:1-10, 32-35; 1 Peter 4:12-14; 5:6-11; John 17:1-11
Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit. Psalm 51:12
Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. James 5:13
Pain and suffering are hard for us to handle alone, Lord. We need you and our fellow Christians to help carry the load. In good times and in bad, we will remember your presence and give you the offering of our praise. We find joy in your salvation and cheerfully give you – our creator, redeemer, and sustainer – our thanks and praise for blessings and mercy. Amen.
Belief of the Church
With the whole of Christendom, we share faith in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe and confess that God has revealed Himself once and for all in His Son Jesus Christ; that our Lord has redeemed us with whole of mankind by His death and His resurrection; and that there is no salvation apart from Him. We believe that He is present with us in the Word and the Sacrament; that He directs and unites us through His Spirit and thus forms us into a Church. We hear Him summoning us to follow Him, and pray Him to use us in His Service. He joins us together mutually so that knowing ourselves to be members of His Body we become willing to serve each other.
