Weekly Prayer May 7, 2018


Holy God, Maker of heaven and earth, long ago on a high mountain you appeared to Moses in a thick cloud.  With thunder and lighting and trumpets and fire your voice rang out for all of Israel to hear. You promised to go with your people and you made known your very name, ‘The LORD.’ :I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.  But your face they were not able to see. Yet your word tells us that Jesus is your exact representation, the radiance of your glory. It tells us that the light of the knowledge of your glory is in the face of Jesus Christ. This is why we are here today. Show us your glory, O God, shine forth in the face of your beloved son and give us the light of the knowledge of you.  Show us his face in our prayers, in our singing, in your word, at the table- Show us your glory in Jesus.
