Watchword for the week — Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Sunday, May 21 — Acts 1:6-14; Psalm 68:1-10,32-35
1 Peter 4:12-14;5:6-11; John 17:1-11

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit. Psalm 51:12

Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. James 5:13

Pain and suffering are hard for us to handle alone, Lord. We need you and our fellow Christians to help carry the load. In good times and in bad, we will remember your presence and give you the offering of our praise. We find joy in your salvation and cheerfully give you—our creator, redeemer, and sustainer—our thanks and praise for blessings and mercy. Amen.
