WEEK THREE – Sunday 16 August 2020

 

This week’s video is a message from our CEO around the support our Emergency Relief program has received from churches. This message is bookended with slides that reflect that while COVID-19 restrictions may have kept us apart from our neighbours, your partnership with us has allowed us to continue to BE a neighbour to the most vulnerable.

 

 

Prayer:

 

Father God,

We thank you that even when the world seems darkest,

Your Kingdom continues to break through with promises of light and hope.

And so we pray to you that in times of darkness we may not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief,

knowing that it is You who do the good work and we who are invited to participate.

We are not obligated to complete the work.

But neither are we free to abandon it.

We thank you for the partnerships between Baptist Care SA and the local Baptist Churches of SA.

We ask for your blessing on these partnerships that your Kingdom would be seen in them.

We ask for these partnerships to multiply, so that across our state, Baptist Care SA and local Baptist Churches might be able to join hands together to see, for the benefit of vulnerable people and local communities.

Your Kingdom Come…

Your Will be done…

Amen

 

 

Suggested Bible reading:

Matthew 25:37-40 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
