A caution regarding Prayers of the People online: Folks gathered in-person often recount a lot of detail in their prayers concerning other members or family (“Elderly Name, living alone, experiencing isolation…”). In a private, in-person gathering, this information may be safe, but online, it can expose vulnerable people to harm, since we can’t control who will join the gathering or access it later online. Please contact the Pastor directly by text or phone with prayer requests. Pastor Nathan will be prudent in offering prayers i.e. “For First name only, in need of healing”; “For First name only, comfort in grief” etc. Please contact the pastor directly with news of those needing extra pastoral care.

Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations

Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer

     Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
     Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
     Give us this day our daily bread.
     And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
     And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
     For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
     Amen.

 

Hearing the Sacred Word

Sermon     “At That Time, Deborah. At This Time, Danger”                        Rev. Nathan King
A Reading from the Former Prophets      Judges 4:1-7

The Israelites again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, after Ehud died. 2 So the Lord sold them into the hand of King Jabin of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor; the commander of his army was Sisera, who lived in Harosheth-ha-goiim. 3 Then the Israelites cried out to the Lord for help; for he had nine hundred chariots of iron, and had oppressed the Israelites cruelly twenty years.4 At that time Deborah, a prophetess, wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel. 5 She used to sit under the palm of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim; and the Israelites came up to her for judgment and she settled their disputes. 6 She sent and summoned Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali, and said to him, “The Lord, the God of Israel, commands you, ‘Go, take position at Mount Tabor, bringing ten thousand from the tribe of Naphtali and the tribe of Zebulun. 7 I will draw out Sisera, the general of Jabin’s army, to meet you by the Wadi Kishon with his chariots and his troops; and I will give him into your hand.’”
