Ansai leads both Morning and Evening Prayer this week, in the season of Lent (marking the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert). Morning Prayer – Ansai reads a passage from Hebrews, Chapter 2, verses 1 to 9. In this scripture we are reminded to consider our relationship with God and how we conduct ourselves. This passage helps us consider how Jesus was sent to earth and humbly suffered death for the forgiveness of our sins; “Therefore we must pay greater attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.”
We pray for the people of Ukraine and Russia and for world peace. We pray for wise decision-making and for the moral integrity of all world leaders in the face of evil – most especially this morning.
