Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Jesus, my blessed Lord and Savior, I know that You love me, for Your word—the Bible tells me so! Yet, at times, Lord, I must confess that I grow weak in my faith as I face the challenges of life. I tend to worry about things rather than to pray about them. I tend to look to myself for answers rather than looking to You. Please forgive me my sins. Move me to trust in You always. Lead me in the path You would have me go, so that I may always serve You and be blessed by You. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 38

First Reading: 

Exodus 33:17-23, Exodus 34:1-9

Moses once asked the LORD to reveal to him His glory. The LORD refused to allow Moses to see His full glory, for no sinful man could see it and live. Yet, He did pass by Moses proclaiming His name—a revelation of His mercy, grace, and justice.

Second Reading: 

1 Thessalonians 4:1-7

The apostle Paul urges us to live in a way that pleases God. We should refrain, in particular, from sexual immorality and refuse to be led astray by our lusts as are the unbelievers in this world. God, after all, has called us to holiness!
