2019年10月4崇基週會校牧禱文

我們的天父,感謝祢差遣祢的獨生子耶穌基督來到世間,藉著祂的死亡與復活,祢使祂成為救恩的道路。

 

全能的主啊!當這個世界的邪惡環繞我們,充滿紛亂的噪音,求祢幫助我們專注聆聽祢的引導,並確信祢掌管萬有。慈愛的神,在我們每天與邪惡糾纏掙扎的時候,求祢加力量給我們,幫助我們以祢的聖潔攻克惡念,不讓邪惡在我們心中滋長,又賜我們盼望,叫我們深信祢是最終的得勝者。

 

主耶穌,當週遭發生的事情叫我們失望、憤怒,甚至不堪負荷,求祢保守我們銘記並確信祢的能力、權柄,和慈愛。教我們知道難關和挫敗存在於生命旅途中,而我們卻相信有聖靈的教導和指引,幫助我們走過人生艱難的低谷,不被恐懼、憤恨和仇怨淹蓋。

 

聖靈啊,幫助我們追隨聖經的教訓,去敬畏和尊崇三一上帝,並且以上帝的國和公義,作為我們生命中所首要追求的。奉我主耶穌基督的名,阿們!

The Chaplain’s Prayer at College Assembly on 4 October, 2019

Our heavenly father, we thank you for sending your only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to this world.  Through his death and resurrection, you make him the way of salvation. 

 

Almighty Lord, when the world around us seems evil indeed and is filled with noise of confusion, keep us focused on listening to you for guidance, trusting that you are in control of this world.  Merciful God, empower us in our daily struggle with evil that we might overcome it with your holiness.  Keep us away from the evil that it would not grow in our hearts, and give us hope in your ultimate victory.

 

Lord Jesus, keep us mindful and faithful of your power, authority, and love when we are discouraged or overwhelmed by happenings around us.  Hurdles and frustrations are part of our life journey, yet we believe the Holy Spirit will teach and guide us to walk through the difficult valley of life that we will not be captives of fear, resentment and hatred.

 

Holy Spirit, help us to follow the Bible’s teaching that to fear and honour the triune God, and make the kingdom and righteousness of God become our life priority.  In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
