Pre-Service Prayer:

I ask You, dear Lord Jesus, my heart to keep and train. That I Your holy temple from youth to age remain. Lord, turn my thoughts forever from worldly wisdom’s lore. If I but learn to know You, I shall not want for more. Amen. [TLH 655; Text Translation Copyright © 1939 Concordia Publishing House.  All rights reserved. License #A-710933]

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 31

First Reading: 

1 Samuel 19:1-12

King Saul was intent on murdering David and wanted his son, Jonathan, to assist in doing so. Jonathan demonstrated love to David and God by not following his father’s sinful orders.

Love is the fulfillment of all of God’s Law. Love for God shows itself in love for our neighbor.
