For Sunday 24 July 2016


As we gather for worship Sunday the appointed readings encourage us to bold and confident prayer. In the Gospel Jesus teaches His disciples to address the Lord God, the Almighty Ruler of the Universe as “Father.” As if this were not enough to encourage confident prayer, He also reminds us that even people who don’t nearly approach the perfection of the Lord respond favorably to requests made of them. The patience and mercy of the LORD in listening to prayer is amply illustrated for us in His hearing of Abraham’s prayer. And in the Epistle St. Paul reminds us that we who approach God in prayer have by Him been “made alive together with [Christ]” (Colossians 2:13). Thus the readings teach us that we can certainly approach God as our loving heavenly Father who is eager to hear and to answer our prayers.
