All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
This useful resource--designed especially for pastors, deacons, elders, and other caregivers--provides liturgies and prayers for use in a variety of services.

This lovely blue, compact book, complete with blue and red ribbons and red rubrics, may be carried to any occasion, such as ministry with the sick, prayers at the time of death, and services of holy communion with those who are unable to attend public worship.
