Sunday Evening Pastoral Prayer - 29 September 2013
Adoration and Intercession: Paul Miller reminds us in his book, “A Praying Life”, that the beginning of the Lord’s Prayer, “Our Father”, draws us to the encouraging conclusion that “[y]ou are the center of your heavenly Father’s affection. That is where you find rest for your soul” (34). That’s what our shorter catechism says, in a bit different way, “to draw near to God with all holy reverence and confidence, as children to a father, able and ready to help us” (Q and A 100). Let us now draw near.
