Scripture        Psalms 80:1-2, 8-19

Lord, so often You build us up and we become confident in ourselves and forget that all we have is a gift from You.  So often You have had to withdraw Your hand of blessing that we may learn to return to You in faith that leads us to obey Your Word.  Forgive us Lord, restore us to a deeper fellowship with You and with each other than we have ever known before.  In the precious Name of Jesus.  Amen.

Scripture        Isaiah 5:1-7

Father let us as Your vineyard produce sweet fruit for You.  The fruit of righteousness and justice, the fruit of love and of peace.  Do not let us become infected with the violence, oppression, and injustice that exists in our world.  Shine Your Light through us so that many people may find the way of life that is found only in Jesus Christ our Lord.  In His Name we ask this.  Amen.

Scripture        Hebrews 11:1-3

O Lord Jesus, it is by faith that we live and breathe.  Most of us have never seen you in person or in a vision and we did not witness Your death and resurrection.  We live by faith in Your Word that was handed down to us by the godly men and women who have gone before us.  Thank You for their faithful testimony.  Help us to faithfully share Your Word and Love with future generations.  I Your Name, Lord Jesus.  Amen.
