Wednesday Greetings,

Some prayers are worth praying over and over again.  As Christians we have the Lord's Prayer that we use most every Sunday in Worship.The following prayer, world famous, is one we ought to pray every day.In light of all the murderous killings in the world, especially in the Presbyterian Church in California, this is a part of our response.Do not let evil overcome you.  Do not let yourself become the evil that you hate.  Evil will not win.  Love always wins.  And as hidden as it is sometimes, the will of God will prevail.We have a chance to live it every moment of every day and night.Here's your prayer today.  Shalom.  Pastor Steve Melde

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.Where there is hatred let me sow love;Where there is injury, pardon;Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seekTo be consoled as to console;To be understood as to understand;To be loved as to love.For it is in giving that we receive;It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Peace in our journeys,
Pastor Steve Melde
