Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, our dear heavenly Father, as we meet to worship You this day we pray that You would send Your Holy Spirit to enlighten our hearts and minds. Do not allow our natural foolishness and pride to interfere with the instruction of Your Word. Lead us to a true appreciation of Your truths, a greater love for our Savior, and a heightened determination to follow You with faithfulness. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 27

First Reading: 

Isaiah 49:5-7

Isaiah here records a conversation between God the Father and God the Son. The Father identifies the Son as “My Servant” and promises to give Him as “a light to the Gentiles” and “My salvation to the ends of the earth!”

Second Reading: 

2 Peter 1:16-21

Peter assures us that he and the other apostles did not record fables within their New Testament books, but rather recorded the words and actions of Jesus which they witnessed, just as he personally witnessed our Lord’s transfiguration!
