He was begging for alms, money for the poor, this lame man What he received, healing; but not merely of his body, healing of his soul, spiritual healing making him clean, worthy entering the gates, the courts, entering the temple with shouts with leaps, with joy with unending praises to God asking for alms, by their faith, receiving so much more.
June 7, 2009 I served as Liturgist Call to Worship: Let us praise God, the creator of heaven and Earth. Let us seek God with open minds and open hearts. May we feel the Holy spirit among us. As the Scriptures are read and the Word proclaimed, as prayers and music are offered, may we receive with joy and thanksgiving what is offered for us. Unison Prayer: Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may love you with our whole self, and worthily praise your holy name. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Luke 7:17-22 Prayer of Dedication: Loving God, the giver of all that is good; our lives are blessed daily by your gifts. Help us to receive your gifts with such gratitude, that we will be giving, as you are to us. We pray that through us the whole world will know the gift of your generous love in Jesus Christ, the one who gave his life for us, and for the whole world.
