Second Sunday after Pentecost
Watchword for the Week — Declare God’s glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples. Psalm 96:3
Sunday, May 29 — 1 Kings 8:22–23,41–43; Psalm 96:1–9
Galatians 1:1–12; Luke 7:1–10
I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Psalm 143:6
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
We pause to say within our hearts that we need you, God. Troubles come our way, burdens are heavy, and we can no longer walk the path. We feel like giving up, but you remind us that you carried the cross to Calvary for us and took all of our burdens. Refresh our spirits, Lord, and have mercy on us. Amen.
