Last Night at BSM

January 15, 2019

Last night at BSM, Rev. Ann-Therese Ortiz led us in meditating on Luke 3:1, 10-16, and 21-22. God embraced and called Jesus beloved.  God embraces us.  Can we listen for God’s word of beloved-ness to us?

Listen to the sermon here.

The faith community lifted these prayers to God:

Prayers for more divine appointments and connections, for communication restored with ****, for ways to connect and gain new clients, for ways to raise and fund the mission trip, to hear your voice again and for steps–to be guided.

I am afraid that love will not come and that I will forever be alone.  I pray that someday I find someone to spend the rest of my life with.

I’m thankful for my mother and her **** years of life!  I pray for her health, well-being, safety, and peace of mind.  Thanks be to God.

I pray for **** who has been sick since ****.  He has another doctor’s appointment, and I am anxious for answers so that he can be well again.

Help me be grounded. Help me be open.  Help me be present.  So, I can witness creation.

I pray for inspiration and persistence.

Prayers for my depression, give me hope, give me light.  Remind me of how dearly I am loved.

I pray for growth and strength for the new year for all.  Prayers for joy in the winter months.
