Hymns: 281; 377:1,6-10; 779
Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear heavenly Father, as I enter into Your presence to worship this day, give me a humble heart to confess my sins, a ready mind to hear Your Word, a joyous soul to sing Your praises, and a fervent desire to love and serve You all the days of my life! In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 97

First Reading: 

Numbers 24:10-17

Balaam could not curse Israel as Balak desired. Under the influence of the Spirit of God this false prophet foretold the coming of Jesus: “A Star shall come out of Jacob; a Scepter shall rise out of Israel.”

Second Reading: 

Matthew 11:25-30

Jesus was pleased with the Father’s decision to reveal His truths to the simple of heart, rather than to the brilliant of mind. He invites us to come to Him with all of our burdens and to receive from Him rest for our souls!
