Act of Worship

Wednesday 8/7/2015

Action: Prayer

All that I do today I set out to do in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


Think about how God would want you to speak and act today.





Theme: The sign of the Cross

The Sign of the Cross expresses blessing. It symbolizes God blessing us, God embracing us with blessings. And in this same sign we express our belief in God. In the Sign of the Cross we embrace our God with mind and heart and all of our strength.

The Word: A verse from the book of John (NT)

“Out of the fullness of his grace he has blessed us all, giving us one blessing after another.”

John 1.16
