Twenty-Second Sunday after Pentecost October 16, 2016

October 16, 2016

Worship Focus:  The readings for today give Christians a clear directive to persist in prayer, never growing weary of asking God for what we need, remembering that the Word guides us in determining our needs and knowing that God will respond out of love in our best interest. In doing so we persist in our faith, preaching and proclaiming the Word at all times by our Christian example. This is a challenging task which we can accomplish only through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Like Jacob in the Old Testament lesson, we are bold to say to our Lord, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”
