Sunday, April 30 — Acts 2:14a,36–41; Psalm 116:1–4,12–19

He remembered us in our low estate, for his steadfast love endures forever. Psalm 136:23

Gracious God, you have given vitality to the church by allowing your Spirit to flow through our words, work and worship. Enable us this day to build a strong sense of community, to discover the power of love and strengthen each other through offering support in times of need. Help us, we pray, to truly be your church. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
