Pre-Service Prayer:

O LORD God, our Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier—as we enter this new year, we come before You with humble but hope-filled hearts. You have loved us, claimed us as Your own, and declared us to be kings and priests before You. May we listen carefully this day to Your Word, so that we might better understand and fulfill our roles in Your kingdom. May our praises properly express Your glory, and may our prayers reflect our confidence in Your grace. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 90

First Reading: 

Isaiah 40:26-31

Our God is a great God! He created this world and still preserves it. He does not ever get tired. He gives power to the weak and renews the strength of all who place their trust in Him!

Second Reading: 

Luke 4:16-21

Jesus was sent to preach a gospel message of spiritual healing and deliverance. When should a person be prepared to listen? Right now, for this is “the acceptable year of the LORD!”
