Redeemer Lutheran Church - Odessa, TX


Sunday sermon for today March 22 was very meaningful to me and it got my day started with a much better spirit than I have been having. For today I have felt we are truly in God's hands. I may weaken tomorrow, but I will remind myself of these inspiring words.
I ask God to listen to our prayers for David, Sharon and loved ones. And I say: Lord of lords and King of kings; Teacher; Rabi; Great Healer are just a few names I know to call my Father! Heal our family and our Church. Pour out a blessing for us and heal us all! Let your Word be heard especially when Love; Joy and Peace is heard! Hear my prayer Lord, hear my prayer! Amen.
