2020 will be the year of mercy. We will seek and understand mercy more deeply. Each verse during the year will connect to mercy.

  

Building Block 1

Hebrews 4:16 (January)

 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, 

that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.



2020 Prayer from New Year's Eve Teaching

We acknowledge in this new year that all our challenges and shortcomings will not disappear.

We confess that sometimes we are conflicted and confused.

We mature in the midst of our immaturity.

We learn in the midst of our ignorance.

We forgive in the midst of our judgmental postures.

We love in the midst of our selfishness.

We pray in the midst of our materialism. 

We seek your mercy, Adonai.

May the wick of your patience burn a little longer.

We seek your mercy, Adonai.

May the pitcher of your grace pour into this empty cup. 

We seek your mercy, Adonai.

May the wings of your love carry this feather a little longer.

We seek your mercy, Adonai.

Ha-ne-nu, Ha-ne-nu E-lo-him (Have mercy on us, have mercy on us, O God)
