CALL TO WORSHIP:
9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” Revelation 7:9-10

Check out in the library this week…

Saving Amelie by Cathy Gohlke. Rachel Kramer has determined that this trip with her father to Germany in 1939 will be her last. But a cryptic letter from her estranged friend, begging Rachel for help, changes everything. Rachel fears her father’s files may hold answers about Hitler’s plans for others whom the regime deems “unworthy of life.” She risks searching his classified documents only to uncover shocking secrets about her own history and a family she’s never known. Forced into hiding, Rachel’s every ideal is challenged as she risks her life—and asks others to do the same—for those she barely knows but comes to love.

Before Amen by Max Lucado. Prayer is a lifeline, a beacon of hope that we can cling to in life’s difficult moments…Lord, please protect my family…God, I need your help to make it through today… Prayer is the most necessary and most basic expression of our faith, yet we often struggle to do it. The daily duties of life crowd in and we don’t communicate with our heavenly Father. The disciples also struggled with prayer. In response to their questions, Jesus gives them, and us, a simple, beautiful example to follow.
