We joyfully lift in prayer Bethel Lutheran Church, Bartonville, and Pastor Kara Wiechmann as Pastor Wiechmann is installed as pastor tomorrow morning, Sunday, February 4, at 9:00 a.m.
Almighty God, all honor and glory are yours. As you have raised up in your Church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ, grant now the indwelling of your Holy Spirit to Pastor Kara Wiechmann as she takes up this call: that she may faithfully fulfill the duties of this ministry, be sustained and encouraged in this household of faith, and rightly proclaim your gospel. We pray that the saints at Bethel Lutheran Church receive her with respect and affection, and that she return the same to them, that together they may reflect the love that you have for all in Christ Jesus our Lord. To you we give praise forever: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
