Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord, our precious Savior God, may we by grace ever be led to understand our own sin and weakness and then to rejoice in Your mercy and grace. It is You, O Lord, who has saved us; not we ourselves. Give us the strength day by day to live our lives in peace and with love to the glory of Your name. With faith in Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 89

First Reading: 

Romans 11:33-36

Our God's wisdom and knowledge go far beyond our abilities to understand. Let us, therefore, with humility and appreciation listen as He reveals His gracious plans to us and for us in His Word!

Second Reading: 

Matthew 16:13-20

Who is Jesus Christ? While many in our day seek to make of Jesus simply one religious teacher among a multitude, let us join Peter in recognizing that Jesus Christ is "the Christ, the Son of the living God!"
