Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, You have graciously brought me into Your kingdom, having created faith within my heart—faith in Your dear Son, Jesus! By faith You have connected me to Your Son, even as a branch is connected to a vine. Through His power You enable me to honor You through my words and actions. As I enter Your presence this day accept my prayers and praises and instruct me in the way You would have me go. Grant these petitions, O Lord, in Jesus’ saving name. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 48

First Reading: 

Proverbs 2:1-8

God’s Word is so very precious, because through it God reveals to us His truths and bestows upon us His wisdom! Seek that wisdom diligently through a regular study of the Word, and you will find that you will be richly blessed!

Second Reading: 

Romans 15:1-6

God gives us wisdom through His Word not to please ourselves, but rather to put us in the position to bless others. May God move us all to strive to build others up in their faith, so that we all with one mind and mouth may glorify our Savior God!
