Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, my dear heavenly Father, I pray that You would send Your Holy Spirit to bless me this day as I worship. Move me to entrust myself entirely to Your care, especially in view of the many things in life which cause me needless fear and worry.  Instruct me concerning Your abiding presence.  Permit me to experience Your saving power.  Help me to rejoice in Your amazing love.  I ask this in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 97

First Reading: 

Romans 8:18-30

The sufferings of this present world do not compare to the glory which will be ours in heaven in view of our faith.  As we endure suffering we can rest assured that the Spirit of God will be with us to help us, and that God will work out all things, both good and bad, for our blessing.

Second Reading: 

Luke 4:38-44

Jesus spent His time during His ministry helping others.  He healed the sick, cast out demons from those possessed, and proclaimed the good news of God’s kingdom wherever He went!
