For our summer catechesis, we are studying the Table of Duties from the Small Catechism. This week we consider everyone. I recommend you listen here: 2013-09-08 Catechesis – To Everyone
The Catechism: Table of Duties—To Everyone: Romans 13:9; 1 Timothy 2:1
|The commandments…are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Romans 13:9||1st+|
|I urge…that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone. 1 Timothy 2:1||2nd+|
Prayer for Everyone
O Lord, as You have loved us in place of Yourself and thereby fulfilled all of God’s Law on our behalf, teach us to walk by faith in Your love in all that we do, to live in love and self-sacrifice toward others in our callings, and to pray for everyone in need, seeking not our own glory but the welfare and salvation of our neighbor; in Your holy name we pray. Amen.
