A Prayer of Anger

Psalm 109

July 7, 2019 • Rev. Eric Chappell

Rage is only safe in the presence of God. As we continue through our Summer Psalms sermon series, this Sunday we arrive at an imprecatory psalm, Psalm 109, a prayer of anger. Eugene Peterson describes imprecatory psalms as prayers where Christians learn how “to cuss without cussing.” When we read these psalms, we often don’t know how to handle them and feel weird expressing similar anger to God in prayer. This Sunday, we have the honor of having the Rev. Eric Chappell, Assistant Pastor at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Orange, preach on Psalm 109 and help us learn how to pray a godly prayer of anger. I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday! Pastor Adam

A Prayer of Waiting

Psalm 62 • September 1, 2019 • Rev. Adam Feichtmann

Waiting in lines. How do you feel about waiting in lines? Most people find waiting in lines torturous, specifically when the waiting time is unoccupied. Waiting in general is something that most of us try to avoid. The Psalms remind us that not only is waiting a part of life, but it is actually a practice that we need to cultivate. This Sunday we’re wrapping up our Summer Psalms sermon series by looking at Psalm 62: A Prayer of Waiting. To prepare for Sunday, read, meditate, and pray through Psalm 62. Then practice waiting in silence. Try to sit in one place for 5 minutes and embrace the silence, while letting the words of Psalm 62 become your words, your prayer. I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday! Pastor Adam

A Prayer for Justice

Psalm 7 • August 25, 2019 • Mr. Derek Rishmawy

“Oh, let the evil of the wicked come to an end.” - A prayer from Psalm 7. Let this cry for justice become our prayer. Evil and sin is rampant in our world (and in ourselves). Psalm 7 describes God as a righteous judge who hates evil and loves justice. This Sunday we have the privilege of welcoming Derek Rishmawy, the new RUF Campus Minister at UCI, as we hear him preach on Psalm 7, A Prayer for Justice. To prepare for Sunday, read, meditate, and pray through Psalm 7. Let the words make you feel uncomfortable. Uncomfortable because of the evil and sin inside you, and uncomfortable because of the evil and sin this world. But then, let this reality comfort you: God is a righteous judge, he is on your side and he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to deal with all evil and sin. I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday! Pastor Adam

A Prayer of Confidence

Psalm 23 • August 18, 2019 • Rev. Josh Eby

Psalm 23 is one of the most popular psalms and prayers in the Bible. It resonates with us because we all go through dark valleys in life, and we need to be reminded that God is with us and will comfort us. If you haven’t already, try and memorize Psalm 23. Spend 5 minutes each day over the next week and dedicate some time and energy to memorizes these 6 short verses. It is not if you will need to pray this prayer, but when you will need to pray this prayer. This Sunday Rev. Josh Eby will conclude his month long visit by preaching on Psalm 23. As you prepare for the sermon, please also give thanks for all the work that Josh Eby has done for Redeemer over this past year, especially with the pastoral search committee and me. Have a blessed Lord’s Day this Sunday! Pastor Adam
