A Message from Pastor Carl

I am looking forward to the Fourth of July!
We watched the Thiensville fireworks last weekend and had the opportunity to begin the celebration of our nation, and I look forward to continuing that celebration on the Fourth.  But I especially look forward to worshiping with you and bringing our nation to God in prayer.
God has been at work in my life, teaching me how to live in conversation with Him more actively.  It began last fall, when in pursuit of spiritual hunger (remember that goal?) I began tying my prayers more closely to meditation on God’s Word.  That was beneficial.  But when my small group began studying prayer a few months ago, I was challenged to dive even more deeply into both prayer and meditation on the scriptures, and the impact on my relationship with God has been profound.
As we worship on Saturday, the service will follow a pattern for prayer that was modeled for us by Dr. Martin Luther: Begin by listening to the Word of God.  Then allow that Word of God to lead you into threefold prayer as you: rejoice, repent, and request.  Finally, apply the model of the Lord’s Prayer to what God has taught you from the scriptures.
This has been my practice in my devotional time for a couple of months now, and it has resulted in making my personal relationship with God a whole lot more personal.  God has directed my prayers in a way that I did not realize was possible before, and He has also routinely opened my eyes to see new treasures in the scriptures.  The service on Saturday will allow me to invite you into this particular conversation with God, and I hope that it is just as personal for you as it has been for me.
There has been a lot of talk about what our nation needs during an undeniably difficult time.  I have few answers when it comes to those big questions, but I know this: Our nation needs people who are listening to Jesus and interceding for our country according to His will for us.  And that is who we will be on Saturday.
I am looking forward to the Fourth of July!
God Bless America
