READINGS & PRAYERS

We are currently in the season of Epiphany. Epiphany is about God’s revelation where we celebrate the coming of the Magi to honor Jesus, representing Jesus’ mission to bring his good news to all nations under heaven. In Epiphany, we remember Jesus’ earthly life and mission to bring God’s Kingdom among us and to reclaim the world and make it whole again.

Monday Psalm 97 | Genesis19.1-29 | Hebrews 11.1-12 | John 6.27-40

Father in heaven, from the days of Abraham and Moses until today, you have formed a people in the image of your Son. Bless this people with the gift of your kingdom. May we serve you with our every desire and show love for one another even as you have loved us.

Tuesday Psalm 98 | Genesis 21.1-21 | Hebrews 11.13-22 | John 6.41-51

Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and earth: mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace.

Wednesday Psalm 99 | Genesis 22.1-8 | Hebrews 11.23-31 | John 6.52-59

O God, you that will not flatter us who love flattery, and do offer us toil who love ease, open our eyes that we may see what you would have us see in all the world about us, and our ears that we may hear what word you would speak in him who is that Word.

Thursday Psalm 100 | Genesis 23.1-20 | Hebrews 11.32-12.2 | John 6.60-71

You have called us into your presence, O God. Be, therefore, light for our darkness, and strength for every high purpose wherein we are weak.

Friday Psalm 101 | Genesis 24.1-27 | Hebrews 12.3-11 | John 7.1-13

Bestow upon us, O God, all that you ask of us, that in asking life of you we may be ready to share your life, and the weight of it, which is your love in Christ Jesus.

Saturday Psalm 102 | Genesis 24.28-51 | Hebrews 12.12-29 | John 7.14-36

We have come, O God, at your invitation. Grant us now in the power of your Spirit to hear the word which makes whole the sick, and all things new that were old.

Sunday Psalm 103 | Genesis 24.50-67 | 2 Timothy 2.14-21 | Mark 10.13-22

Father, watch over your family and keep us safe in your care, for all our hope in you.

NEW CITY CATECHISM

Q22: Why must the Redeemer be truly human?

A: That in human nature he might on our behalf perfectly obey the whole law and suffer the punishment for human sin; and also that he might sympathize with our weaknesses.


SUNDAY’S LITURGY

CALL TO WORSHIP

We will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, we will remember your wonders of old.

We will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds.

Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God?

You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.

You with your arm redeemed your people…

When the waters saw you, O God, when the waters saw you, they were afraid; indeed the deep trembled.

The clouds poured out water; the skies gave forth thunder; your arrows flashed on every side.

The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind; your lightnings lighted up the world;

the earth trembled and shook.

Your way was through the sea, your path through the great waters;

yet your footprints were unseen.

You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

(from Psalm 77)



AFFIRMATION OF FAITH


I believe in God the Father Almighty,


Maker of heaven and earth.


I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,


who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary.


He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;


he descended to the dead.


The third day he rose again from the dead.


He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand


of God the Father Almighty.


From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.


I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church,


the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,


the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.





CLOSING SCRIPTURE

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him (James 1.5)
