Prayer Before Service . . .O Lord of perfect wisdom, humble us this day as the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to the false, worldly wisdom to which we cling and moves us to hear, learn and inwardly digest the wisdom which comes down from above in Christ Jesus our Savior. Hear us and change us for His name’s sake. Amen.

Lutherans for Life… Whom can you encourage today? Think of lonely hearts that need the encouragement of the presence of their Savior. Tell those who are worried about the future that you are praying for them and that God has good plans for them. And don’t forget the simple fact that just listening to others and letting them know you care may be all they need. Listen to your Savior encouraging you in His Word and you will be well prepared to encourage others.” Rev. Jonathan M.
