Jesus Prays for Us

May 14th, 2015

Jesus prays for us. Do you ever think about that? We pray for one another and we pray for ourselves, but Jesus also prays for us knowing intimately the challenges and struggles we face every day. That was the assurance he gave to his first disciples before he left them, and it’s the assurance he gives us too, “so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves.(John 17:13)

I invite you to know the joy of being part of the community for whom Jesus prays, as we gather for worship again this week.

Follow Me

Dear Disciples of American Lutheran,

When Jesus calls his first disciples they drop everything to follow him! Do we have that same sense of urgency about God’s call to us-to share the love of Christ in all we do and say? There is so much to distract us, so much noise and busyness that keeps us from focusing on what is truly important in life. As we continue in this season of Epiphany, we watch for the signs of God’s presence breaking into our ordinary lives, so we may respond-now! 

See you in church,
Pastor Gretchen
