Pre-Service Prayer:
O Christ, our true and only Light, enlighten those who sit in night;
Let those afar now hear Your voice and in Your fold with us rejoice.
 
Fill with the radiance of Your grace the souls now lost in error's maze;
Enlighten those whose inmost minds some dark delusion haunts and blinds.
 
O gently call those gone astray that they may find the saving way!
Let ev'ry conscience sore oppressed in You find peace and heav'nly rest.
 
Shine on the darkened and the cold; recall the wand’rers to Your fold.
Unite all those who walk apart; confirm the weak and doubting heart,
 
That they with us may evermore such grace with wond’ring thanks adore
And endless praise to You be giv’n by all Your Church in earth and heav’n.
Amen.
Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 66

First Reading: 

Romans 10:12-17

Faith comes from hearing the Gospel. Those who call upon the Lord Jesus in faith will be saved. What’s missing?  Someone to proclaim that Word of God. We are called and commissioned to proclaim the Good News of salvation. Let’s rejoice in our calling and faithfully serve in it!

Second Reading: 

Matthew 13:31-32

Jesus’ parable of the mustard seed—what is small grows into something large and beneficial. Our work in sharing the Gospel may seem small, but because God is the one who blesses that work, the results are large and soul-saving.
