2017-11-28-Council of Elders Weekly Call to Prayer

Loving God, as we prepare to observe World AIDS Day we thank you for the multiple advances in care that has been made over the past 30 years. We remember our brothers and sisters that have succumbed to the disease.

We pray for all those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS who remain consigned to the margins. Provide them comfort and remove the isolation and fear that creeps in and envelopes them. Help them to remember that you love them just as they are, and that you are always there beside them, watching over them and guiding them.

We ask that you break down the barriers of stigma and shame that leads to isolation and fear. Help us to examine the intersections between poverty, immigration, class, race, sexism and other “isms” that contribute to new diagnoses.

Give us the courage to confront these issues and their intersectionality and “live as people who are free, not using our freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.” Amen

Join us Sunday our Scripture is

Matthew 25:31-46 World English Bible (WEB)
Jesus said,
“But when the Human One comes in their glory, and all the holy angels with them, then they will sit on the throne of glory. Before them all the nations will be gathered, and they will be separated one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. They will set the sheep on their right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the Sovereign will tell those on their right hand, ‘Come, blessed of God, inherit the Realm prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.’

“Then the righteous will answer the Human One, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you a drink? When did we see you as a stranger, and take you in; or naked, and clothe you? When did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you?’

“The Sovereign will answer, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you did it to me.’ Then they will say also to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and their angels; for I was hungry, and you didn’t give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and you didn’t take me in; naked, and you didn’t clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’

“Then they will also answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn’t help you?’

“Then the Human One will answer them, saying, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you didn’t do it to one of the least of these, you didn’t do it to me.’ These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
