Pre-Service Prayer:

Lord God, our blessed heavenly Father, may we ever walk humbly in Your sight. Lead us to accept the truths You reveal in the Bible and apply them daily in our lives. Prevent the unbelief of this present evil world from overcoming our faith and preserve us all unto life everlasting in heaven. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 31

First Reading: 

1 Kings 18:20-39

The Lord demonstrated clearly on Mt. Carmel that He alone is the true God by causing fire to descend and burn the offering and altar set up by Elijah in opposition to the 450 prophets of Baal. The Lord remains the one and only true God today. Let us embrace Him by faith and serve Him with genuine godliness.

Second Reading: 

Romans 8:26-27

The one true God is a Trinity - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. St. Paul comforts us with the assurance that the Holy Spirit intercedes for us in our weaknesses. What a great God we have!
