The Path of Blessing: Ritual & Righteousness ~ Isaiah 58

Pastor’s Prayer

Almighty God, you alone are just and righteous.  You are our only delight, our treasure our joy, our hope, our longing expectation to satisfy our souls.  We confess, Lord, our often complacent and smug religious formality.  We confess our delight and hope are often in the things of this world and this shows itself most clearly in the heartless, empty ritual of our Lord’s day.  Lord, help us.  Lord, grant faith and repentance this morning that we might delight in your justice and your righteousness.  Cause us to long for the day when your light will break forth like the dawn and the glory of the LORD shall be our rear guard.  Lord, convict us concerning our selfishness and pride as we are consider our responsibility to those who are bound & oppressed around us.  Grant us eyes to see and ears to hear and hearts to love as you have called us to.   May delight for your justice and righteousness be our aim and end.   Help us, Lord, be quick and ready to submit to your Word this morning that our souls might be like a watered garden and our souls might be satisfied in Jesus Christ our Savior, Redeemer and Delight.  Amen & Amen.
