Pre-Service Prayer:

Lord God, our blessed heavenly Father, we come before You this day humbly to confess our sins, joyously to receive Your forgiveness, eagerly to hear a message from Your Word, and expectantly as we await Your blessing. Bless our worship as we approach You in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 54

First Reading: 

Revelation 3:14-22

Jesus admonished the lukewarm Christians in Laodicea to turn away from trust in riches and to return to a heart-felt trust in and dependence upon God. He was standing at the doors of their hearts, even as He does at ours, knocking and desiring to enter our lives with His distinct blessings!

Second Reading: 

John 14:13-21

Jesus assured His disciples, even as He does us, that after His ascension into heaven He would remain an effective force in our lives. He will respond to our prayers. He has sent His Spirit of truth to be our Helper. He remains at our side. Let us show Him our love by obeying His command to love!
