Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, my dear heavenly Father, as I approach You this day in worship, fill my heart with joy as I hear and consider the truths of Your Word.  Give me greater understanding of those truths and help me to apply them faithfully in my life, so that I might honor Your saving name and encourage my brethren with all of my words and through all of my actions.  It is in Jesus’ name that I pray.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 5

First Reading: 

Psalm 78:1-7

The Psalmist proclaims the Word of God intended for every generation.  As he and his generation had heard God’s Word from their fathers, so he urges his generation to share those same truths with their children, so that they too might “set their hope in God!

Second Reading: 

Luke 17:20-21

God’s kingdom is not an external kingdom like those of this world.  Rather, God’s kingdom is a spiritual kingdom and includes His powerful work on behalf and within the hearts of all who believe in Jesus as Savior and Lord!
