Pre-Service Prayer:

Lord God, our blessed Savior, impress upon our minds and hearts this day the truths of Your precious Word. Move us, O Lord, having embraced those truths to apply them to our lives. Let us never be deceived by Satan or this world and so be drawn away from You. Rather keep us close as we enjoy Your means of grace and experience Your Spirit’s blessing. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 36

First Reading: 

Proverbs 24:14-20

Strive to live wisely in the Lord, for then you will experience His blessing. Do not envy the prosperity or worry about the plots of the wicked, for the Lord will deal with them according to His own just plan.

Second Reading: 

Luke 9:57-62

We are called to follow Jesus as His disciples. We cannot do it with half a heart or whenever we wish. Rather we are urged to follow faithfully, putting our hands to the plow and not looking back!
