Prayer for the Day

Almighty God,we thank you
for planting in us
the seed of your word.
By your Holy Spirit
help us to receive it with joy,
live according to it, and
grow in faith, hope, and love,
through Jesus Christ,
our Savior and Lord.

[Book Review: The Evangelical Lutheran Book of Worship: Leaders Desk Addition is one that every priest or minister who loves Sunday Liturgy will cherish. Many of the prayers for Sundays are perfect for the General Intercessions in the Catholic Church. The prayer above will be prayed today in most Lutheran churches across the USA. This edition for the use of pastors is more expensive than the pew addition but includes ands worth more. This edition benefits from experiences learned when the Roman Catholic, Anglican, United Methodists, and the Presbyterians revised their worship books. This edition includes many prayers and blessings for other occasions.]
