Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Jesus, my precious Savior and Lord—I come before You confessing my sin and unworthiness, yet I come confident of Your grace and forgiveness. Lead me to sincere repentance; guide me into a better understanding of Your truth; move me to sing Your praises; and in my dealings with others may I forgive even as I have been so richly forgiven. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 86

First Reading: 

Genesis 50:15-21

After their father’s death Joseph’s brothers were afraid that he would seek revenge in view of their sins against him. Joseph assured them of his forgiveness, knowing that what had happened was all part of God’s providential plan.

Second Reading: 

Colossians 3:12-17

Paul here encourages us Christians to live good and godly lives— forgiving and loving one another, while worshipping and striving to do everything we do in the name of our Lord Jesus and with thankfulness to God.
