Prayer: What gift have You given to me O Lord, Jesus? Show me ways in which I can use that gift to serve You more fully, and to give me that faith to serve You in all I do. Amen.
Read: Ephesians 4: 9 – 13
Are we all called to be Ministers of Word and Sacrament? Why or why not? God calls only a few to become Ministers of Word and Sacrament. But that does not mean that we can not help with worship. The most important thing is preparing ourselves for worship. Making time for daily prayer and scripture reading. Worship is our celebration of God and our lifeline for weekly encouragement.
What gifts has God given to you that you use to help others worship God?
Prayer: God of grace, You have given us minds to know You, hearts to love You, and voices to sing Your praise. Fill us with Your Spirit, that we may celebrate Your glory and truly worship You; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (PCC – USA “The Service for the Lord’s Day”. Westminster Press, 1984, Prayer #4).
