For your worship and prayers at home

bible.coffee

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

These are unprecedented times, as we know. The more leadership we offer together and are seen to offer together, so much the better!

The LCA/NZ recommends that members stay informed of developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and enact any action that may be recommended by the relevant authorities.

With kind permission, the Lutheran Church Bishop's Message is reprinted below to share with our readers.

What an important time this is for Christians to practise love, patience and tolerance! God grant us the faith, hope and love we need to be kind, caring and generous toward our neighbours. Let them see in us something of our hope and faith in Jesus our Lord, and the assurance that God is most certainly with us in every situation.
Let us pray for the many people in need at this time:

  • for local and national authorities in our own countries and elsewhere tasked with formulating and implementing public health measures and measures to address the virus’s economic impact;
  • for the citizens of our countries, that they will listen to and heed the instructions of the authorities and remain calm, caring for the most needy;
  • for hospital staff caring for COVID-19 patients (and other patients too of course!), and for medical scientists working on a vaccine;
  • for efforts to relieve feelings of isolation experienced by people who are confined to home; 
  • for people who are worrying about their businesses and jobs; and 
  • for ourselves and our fellow citizens, that our actions towards each other will be guided by care and concern.
