Week Ten

The “Dear Church” series explores the pastoral letters of John (1 John, 2 John, 3 John) and the Book of Revelation. Throughout these texts, John encourages the church and helps them navigate living like Jesus in the real world while anticipating the life to come.

Psalm for the Day: Psalm 50:1-8, 22-23

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always
those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without
you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
