MORAVIAN DAILY TEXT
Second Sunday after Pentecost
Watchword for the Week – Declare God’s glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples. Psalm 96:3
Sunday, May 29 – 1 Kings 8:22–23, 41–43; Psalm 96:1–9; Galatians 1:1–12; Luke 7:1–10
I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Psalm 143:6
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
We pause to say within our hearts that we need you, God. Troubles come our way, burdens are heavy, and we can no longer walk the path. We feel like giving up, but you remind us that you carried the cross to Calvary for us and took all of our burdens. Refresh our spirits, Lord, and have mercy on us. 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 the 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.
