Yesterday at second service, I finished the words of institution and invited the congregation to pray the Lord’s Prayer. Oliver looked over to Meg and said, “We say that at my house before bed.” That is the beauty of the liturgy! Especially poignant yesterday were the prayers for healing by members of the congregation with other members of the congregation. The Sunday service translates across generations to our daily lives in surprising ways that you might not have imagined. The Scriptures and prayers that shape the liturgy help us wade through the world and its many voices. It plants the promises of Jesus in our hearts and gives us the prayers to speak as we go about our daily lives. God has not left us to ourselves but has given us the words to speak and to pray.
