Jesus' Prayer He taught His Followers
Our Father in heaven, may Your name be kept holy.
May Your Kingdom come. may Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today the food we need,
And forgive us our sins as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from evil.
(For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory forever. Amen.)

Scripture Text

Creed | Confession

Our World Belongs to God

2008 A.D.

Our world belongs to God! God is King: Let the earth be glad! Christ is victor: His rule has begun! The Spirit is at work: creation is renewed! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! 

Still, despair and rebellious pride fill the earth: some, crushed by failure or broken by pain, give up on life and hope and God; others, shaken, but still hoping for human triumph, work feverishly to realize their dreams. As believers in God, we also struggle with the spirits of this age, resisting them in the power of the Spirit, testing them by God’s sure Word. 

Our world, fallen into sin, has lost its first goodness, but God has not abandoned the work of His hands: our Maker preserves this world, sending seasons, sun, and rain, upholding all creatures, renewing the earth, promising a Savior, guiding all things to their purpose.
