Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Lord God, our dear heavenly Father-I enter Your courts with joy in view of Your grace! By grace You determined to save me from the foolishness of my sinful rebellion and its inevitable result.death. Through the holy life, innocent death, and the glorious resurrection of Your own Son, You have redeemed me and through the effective working of Your Spirit You have called me to faith. Be with and bless me this day as I come before You for worship. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 66

First Reading: 

James 1:22-27

Are we “doers” of the word, or merely “hearers” of that word? The apostle James urges us to put into practice what we learn in the Bible. As God’s children we will want to control what we say and help those in need!

Second Reading: 

John 16:23-30

Jesus informed His disciples on Maundy Thursday evening that He would shortly be returning to His Father. This He did when He ascended into heaven. He promised them and us, however, to both hear and answer our prayers!
