Immerse: The Bible Reading Experience

Next Sunday we're starting our Immerse: Messiah series where we will dive deep into a unique journey through every book of the New Testament. While we will be focusing on it through worship we also have a study component for the congregation. We are encouraging everyone to start a personal study or join a book club group as we read through the New Testament in a new way. Check out the video below that shows the way this Bible study is WAY different than any Bible study you've encountered before.

Prayers for the Inauguration

I encourage you in your praying today, and in the coming days as our new administration begins to lead our nation. Commit with me to pray daily for our President and Vice-President especially during their first 100 days in office.

And today, as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris prepare to take the oaths of office as our 46th President and Vice-President of the United States of America, prayers have been, should be, and will be offered for them. The Apostle Paul writes in his first letter to Timothy, whom Paul assigned to shepherd the churches in Ephesus: “I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone, for rulers and all in authority, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

Our first President, George Washington, set the precedent when he invited Catholic Archbishop, John Carroll, to pray at his inauguration in 1789. Over 230 years later, his prayer provides a solid foundation on which to add our own intercessions for our new President and Vice-President. His original prayer is divided into sections, to which we may add our own heart-felt prayers:

1. Almighty and eternal God,
you have revealed your glory to all nations.
God of power and might, wisdom and justice,
through you authority is rightly administered,
laws are enacted, and judgment is decreed.

2. For the President:
Assist with your spirit of counsel and fortitude
the President of these United States,
that his/her administration may be conducted in righteousness,
and be eminently useful to your people over whom he/she presides.
May he/she encourage due respect for virtue and religion.
May he/she execute the laws with justice and mercy.
May he/she seek to restrain crime, vice, and immorality.

3. For the members of Congress:
Let the light of your divine wisdom
direct the deliberations of Congress, (and especially of N [our congressional rep’s])
and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed
for our rule and government.
May they seek to preserve peace, promote national happiness,
and continue to bring us the blessings of liberty and equality.

4. For state and local officials:
We pray for N., the governor of this state (commonwealth, dominion),
for the members of the legislature, (especially, N.,)
for judges, elected civil officials, (especially, N.,)
and all others who are entrusted to guard our political welfare.
May they be enabled, by your powerful protection,
to discharge their duties with honesty and ability.

5. We likewise commend to your unbounded mercy
all citizens of the United States,
that we be blessed in the knowledge and sanctified in the observance of your holy law.
May we be preserved in union and that peace which the world cannot give;
and, after enjoying the blessings of this life,
be admitted to those which are eternal.

We pray to you, who are Lord and God,
for ever and ever.


Basis for a daily prayer:
May our Lord Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, bless President Biden and Vice-President Harris, and grant them wisdom for the leading/shepherding and healing of our nation toward a wider justice, greater equity, equal prosperity, and deeper dignity for all.

At today’s inauguration, the invocation will be delivered by the Rev. Leo O’Donavan, a longtime Biden family friend.
Rev. Silvester Beaman of the African Methodist Episcopal church (AME) will deliver the benediction after the Presidential oath of office at Noon.

Tomorrow, the Inauguration Prayer Service will be held at the Washington National Cathedral, livestreamed and televised at 10:00 am. It is scheduled to last a little over an hour.

Part 2: The Cross and the Lynching Tree by James Cone - Transforming Center

An illuminating, thoughtful, and hopeful reflection from an eminent Black theologian. He does not proclaim the final word but instead, invites reflection and sparks a conversation. On MLK Jr Day, make some time to read, reflect, and resolve to make a positive response.

"We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny." - MLK Jr, quoted in DREAM.

Have a blessed day, and let Christ help you to be the change.

Rev. Jim Wishmyer


transformingcenter.org Editor’s Note: In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we offer the next installment of our ongoing series, featuring an excerpt adapted from the introduction to James Cone’s The Cross and the Lynching Tree.

The Son of God discloses"

leesburgumc.org We made it through the night, to "dawn's early light..." It’s Thursday, hours after Vice-President Mike Pence declared by virtue of the Electoral College vote count, that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be our next President and...


We invite you to pray more than you scroll today. Pray the Psalms, sing hymns, recite the Lord's prayer, take a prayer walk, or use a breath prayer: Inhale: Hear my prayer, Lord Exhale' Listen to my cries for mercy. Pray, it's better than scrolling endlessly and hoping to feel better, we promise.


PBS NewsHour

We know today many of us are still processing the disturbing events that took place at the Capitol yesterday. We believe one of the best ways to process is through prayer. Join Chaplain of the Senate Rev. Barry Black as he lifts prayers for our Nation.

Senate Chaplain Barry Black closes the joint session of Congress in prayer: "We deplore the desecration of the United States Capitol building, the shedding of innocent blood, the loss of life and the quagmire of dysfunction that threaten our democracy."

Praying for the safety of our congressional leaders and staff; for our first-responders who are charged with keeping peace and protecting the rights and safety of all; for order and sanity to be restored.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayers.
