Pre-Service Prayer:

O LORD God, I come before You today fully aware of my sins and my weaknesses. I come, however, also fully aware of Your mercy and forgiving love. Cleanse my heart, instruct my mind, fill me with Your Spirit, so that trusting in Your Word I might serve You with joy all my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 97

First Reading: 

2 Kings 5:1-19

Elisha healed Naaman of his leprosy, but the greatest gift Naaman received that day was not his physical health. The greatest gift was his newly created faith in the LORD—the one, true God of heaven and earth!

Second Reading: 

Romans 1:13-20

The gospel of God is the power which creates faith within people’s hearts so that they know the grace of God. Those who reject the gospel will have no excuse, for God’s creation reveals His power and His presence in our world.
