10th Sunday after Pentecost

  • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 7220 Southeast Cesar E Chavez Boulevard Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

Persistence in prayer evoked the admiration of Jesus and wins the attention of the Lord when Abraham intercedes for Sodom. The life of the baptized—to be rooted and built up in Christ Jesus the Lord—is to be rooted in prayer. God hears and answers prayer and so strengthens God’s own. “When I called, you answered me; you increased my strength within me.”

Readings this week:

  • Genesis 18:20-32

    Abraham bargains with God for the righteous of Sodom and Gomorrah

  • Psalm 138

    Your steadfast love endures forever; do not abandon the works of your hands. (Ps. 138:8)

  • Colossians 2:6-15 [16-19]

    Buried with Christ in baptism, raised with him through faith
