My Prayer For You

Pastor’s Prayer for 29 April 2018

Almighty God,
Who through the death of Thy Son hast destroyed sin and death,
And through His resurrection hast restored innocence and eternal life
That we, being delivered from the power of the devil,
May live in Thy kingdom,
Grant that we may believe this with our whole heart
And steadfast in this faith, ever praise and thank Thee,
Through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Grant, dear Lord God,
That the blessed Day of Thy holy advent may come soon,
So that we may be redeemed
From this bad, wicked world
(The devil’s dominion)
And freed from the terrible plague that we must suffer
From without and within
(From wicked people and our own conscience.)
Do Thou dispatch this old maggot sack
That we may finally get a different body,
Which is not full of sin,
Inclined to unchasteness and to everything evil
(As this present one is)
But one that is redeemed from all bodily and spiritual misery
And made like unto Thy glorious body, dear Lord Jesus Christ,
That we may at last come to our glorious redemption.
Amen.

–Martin Luther

Published 2011

–Review by Douglas Balzer

Hopefully, the name of Dr. Henry Cloud is a familiar name to you. He is a clinical psychologist who has been contributed significant works such as Integrity, Boundaries, and Nine Things You Must Do (these are my favorite titles). So, due to my familiarity with Cloud, it was a natural fit for me to examine this book. It is especially timely as I am presently making some “necessary endings” in my life. Maybe this is what attracted me to read this book at this time. Clouds approach to writing for me is engaging, and it is hard to put the book down once I start. read more…
