More Than Conquerors

Nothing Shall Separate Us

Eighth Sunday After Pentecost, Year A

This house shall be a house of prayer. That isn’t the text for this week. But it is a sentiment behind the thrust of Romans 8:26-39. We are about prayer this week: prayer that transforms, prayer that equips and enables, prayer that overcomes, prayer that conquers. Worship this week should be centered around prayer.

Eighth Sunday after Pentecost – “More Than Conquerors”

July 26, 2020 – Romans 8:26-39

CALLS TO WORSHIP

LEADER: Who will separate us from the love of Christ?

PEOPLE: Will hardship, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, or death?

LEADER: As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted
as sheep to be slaughtered.”

PEOPLE: No! In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loves
us.

LEADER: For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers,

PEOPLE: Nothing present, nothing that is to come, not power, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all of creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. AMEN. (Rom. 8:26-39)

Almighty Lord of the church, we pray to you from rural meeting houses, downtown cathedrals, from ranch homes and thatched-roof huts, from factories, hospitals, and classrooms,

Make your people one!

Almighty Lord of the church, we pray to you with saints of old and newborn disciples, with your church around the world, with men, women, and children:

Make your people one!
