Waiting For Divine Redemption

March 26, 2020

This week, as we settle into a life of social distancing to help prevent the spread of Covid-19, we will be focusing on how we can be Spiritually united. This week for our Field Guides, we invite you to meditate and pray over Scriptures that we hope will claim the promises that God is always with us and present in times of suffering and tribulation. As you meditate on these words, we invite you to remember that hundreds of people will be reading these same words and meditating on their promises in their own spaces and places. We will become united through this practice!  We hope these scriptures bring you peace and comfort. Our prayer for this time is that our neighbors would remain healthy and safe, and our anxieties would subside to the peace that passes all understanding. Amen. 

Psalm 130

A Song of Ascents.

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
    Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
    to the voice of my supplications!

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
    Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with you,
    so that you may be revered.

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
    and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord
    more than those who watch for the morning,
    more than those who watch for the morning.

O Israel, hope in the Lord!
    For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
    and with him is great power to redeem.
It is he who will redeem Israel
    from all its iniquities.


It’s ok to plead with God during this time. It’s ok to take your biggest fears and worries to the God who is with us always. God wants you to share your deepest struggles.  

God is here. With you. With us. Together as a church, in this digital space.


What do you want to tell God today?


Lord, we give it all to you. Be with us. Amen.
