Prayer before Service . . . Gracious Lord, You remind us that the “first shall be last, and the last first.” You who look into our hearts and souls, order our lives aright, especially as we come into Your holy presence with nothing to give You but our sins and our broken lives for You to heal. Fill us with Your forgiveness full and free what we may rejoice in our great wealth in You; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Savior. Amen.
***To assist in your preparation for the Lord’s Supper, you may turn to the “Christian Questions with their Answers” on page 329 in your hymnals.
