Trinity Sunday Prayer

  We praise Thee, O God, for having made known to us the great mystery of the Holy Trinity. Thou has granted the privilege of worshiping Thee as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, three divine Persons in one unchanging God.

    We worship Thee, O God the Father. Thou hast created us and given us the gift of life. Thou hast sustained us through the years with the gifts of Thy love.  Thou has protected us in danger and guided us safely to this day.  For all these gifts we praise and thank Thy holy name.

We worship Thee, O God the Son. Thou wast slain and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood. Thou hast hidden our sins with the robe of Thy righteousness. Thou hast covered our unworthiness with Thy merit.  Thou didst become the Son of Man that we might become the children of God.  For all these gifts we praise and thank Thy Holy name.

     We worship Thee, O God the Holy Ghost. Thou hast given us the gift of faith so that we know Jesus Christ as our Savior from sin and death and hell. Thou hast given us the assurance of the forgiveness of our sins through Him. Thou hast cheered us with the hope of heaven in Christ. For all these gifts we praise and thank Thy holy name.

     O Holy Trinity, preserve us always in body and soul until we stand at the last in joyful awe and wonder before Thy throne to praise Thee in the fullness of joy, world without and. Amen.

Sermon Excerpt:

Right Answer; Wrong Question,
based on John 3:1-17
by Rev. Randy L Quinn

Near the end of what is commonly referred to as “the Dark Ages,” when people began to travel further than they had before, there was a man who lived alone near a frequently traveled road.

As it happened, a man came to his door once. He was carrying a rather large duck he had just caught. He said he was a cousin of his and had just caught this duck; so he wondered if they could make some duck soup and share the meal.

So the two of them shared the duck soup and told stories about their families. After an enjoyable evening together, the cousin stayed the night and continued his journey in the morning.

Two days later, a man came to the door and introduced himself by saying he was a friend of his cousin who had brought him the duck. He wondered if there was any leftover soup he could share. Well, in fact, there was still a little left, so they added some vegetables and a little broth and shared a meal before the friend of his cousin left.

Three days later, another man came to the door and introduced himself by saying he was a friend of the friend of his cousin who had brought him the duck. He wondered if there was any leftover soup he could share.

Not wanting to be rude, the man welcomed the friend of the friend of his cousin and added more vegetables and broth to the soup and they shared a meal before the friend of the friend of his cousin left.

Well, it happened again, the next week, that a man came to the door and introduced himself by saying he was a friend of the friend of the friend of his cousin who had brought him the duck. He wondered if there was any soup he could share.

Not only was the man’s sense of hospitality wearing thin, so was the duck soup. But he added some more vegetables and broth and they shared a meal before the friend of the friend of the friend of his cousin left.

Two days later, another man came to the door and introduced himself by saying he was a friend of the friend of the friend of the friend of his cousin who had brought him the duck. He wondered if there was any soup he could share.

So the man warmed some water and put it in a bowl and offered it to his guest. His visitor looked at it in dismay and asked what it was.

“That, my friend, is the soup of the soup of the soup of the soup of the duck that my cousin brought me.” And he never had another traveler stop to ask for duck soup again.
