100 DAYS OF PRAYER
 
Beginning this Sunday through Easter Sunday you are invited to join the Great Plains Conference and our bishop in setting apart a sacred and regular time each day during the next 100 days to pray for our nation and a smooth transition of power using “A Prayer in a Time of National Crisis”. Each Wednesday morning there will be a video on our LUMC Facebook page leading you in this prayer:
 
God of all the ages, in your sight nations rise and fall and pass through times of peril. Now when our land is troubled, be near to judge and save. May leaders be led by your wisdom; may they search your will and see it clearly. If we have turned from your way, reverse our ways and help us to repent. Give us your light and your truth, let them guide us; through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of this world, and our Savior. Amen.

JANUARY 17
2ND SUNDAY AFTER THE EPIPHANY
 
“Prayer Is the Solution For the Sick Nation”
Matthew 12:23–25; 2 Chronicles 7:14–15
 
As a nation, we are facing political and pandemic struggles. We must ask ourselves, have we failed to live up to the high calling of God or have we stumbled somewhere? Where did we go wrong? Have we listened to the word of God? We are a divided nation in every way and yet we are supposed to be one nation under God as we always say, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Yes we’re divided in our beliefs, in government, and divided among families and neighbors.  
 
Rev. Ezekiel Koech preaching.
 
HUMAN RELATIONS DAY
 
This Sunday is Human Relations Day. This special offering supports neighborhood ministries and work with at-risk youth. It recognizes the right of all God’s children to realize their potential as human beings in relationship with one another. You may give online or by mailing your check marked “Human Relations Day” to the church.
