The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost

July 27, 2008


Give us today our daily bread,

And let us all be clothed and fed.

From hardship, war, and earthly strife,

From sickness, famine, spare our life.

Let selfishness and worry cease

The we may live in godly peace.

(CW 410:5)

Psalm 145:15, 16

The eyes of all hope in you and you give them their food at the right time. You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

“Dear Father, You Provide All We Need for Our Body and Life”

  1. We look to you alone, O heavenly Father
    1. What sinful attitudes fill our hearts when we are not looking to our heavenly Father alone?
    2. How does Jesus in the Lord's Prayer focus our eyes to look to our heavenly Father for all we need for our body and life?
  2. Your blessings overflow to us
    1. What reminds us that our heavenly Father will take care of all we need for our body and life?
    2. What are we to do if his blessings do not seem to be enough?
    3. What are the two “T-words” for the attitude that brings us a proper perspective about earthly concerns?
