“Either sin is with you, lying on your shoulders, or it is lying on Christ, the Lamb of God. Now if it is lying on your back, you are lost; but if it is resting on Christ, you are free, and you will be saved. Now choose what you want.”   Dr. Martin Luther


Praying the Psalms with Luther

READ: Jeremiah 4:1-18    Psalm 9    Acts 1:12-26

The 9th Psalm is a Psalm of prophecy of the people of Christ, the Holy Christian Church. They suffer, following the example of Christ, and their blood is continually being shed. However, the Psalm gives the prophecy thankfully and comfortingly, so that it might well be called a Psalm of thanks and comfort. The Christians [and especially the holy martyrs] here thank God and are comforted by the fact that God never leaves them, as some of the persecutors convert and become Christians and the others perish. This Psalm belongs in the 1st Commandment and in the 2nd Petition of the Lord’s Prayer.

PRAY:  With all our hearts we give You thanks, O Lord, because at all times You dwell with Your Christians and graciously preserve those in the true faith, those who confess Your name. Dwell is us, O Lord, with Your grace. Increase Your Church daily, and grant us to be and to remain, true members of the same to our final end. Amen.


Worship continues each Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. in our Church parking lot.   Pull up close, and join us as we worship the Lord. 

Please remain in your vehicle – we are still practicing “social distancing”.

We also are on Facebook “live” during the service.  It is also available to watch any time after we meet.   Jesus be with you!
