We believe we are blessed when people revile us and persecute us and falsely utter all kinds of evil against us because of Jesus Christ. We shall rejoice and be glad, for our reward is great in heaven, for in the same way, they persecuted the prophets who were before us. Amen
OPENING HYMN: “All Who Love and Serve your City” #433 UMH
OPENING PRAYER O God of Shalom, We have built up these walls to protect ourselves from our enemies, but these walls also cut us off from receiving your love. Break down those walls. Help us to see that way to your heart is through the reconciliation of our own hearts with our enemies. Bless them and us, that we may come to grow in love for each other and for you; Through Jesus Christ. Amen
