All: Loving and forgiving…


Solo: God forgives us all our sins, healing those who live in pain, saving us from final death. God fills us with goodness and love.

All: Loving and forgiving…


Solo: Good and gracious is the Lord, slow to anger, rich in love. God remembers not our sins; forgiving and loving is God.

All: Loving and forgiving…

All: Loving and forgiving…

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that you have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray You to protect me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the wicked foe may have no power over me. Amen.

* Prayer:

O God the Father in heaven,  Have mercy upon us.

O God the Son, Redeemer of the world,  Have mercy upon us.

O God the Holy Ghost, true Comforter,  Have mercy upon us.

From all sin; From all error; From all evil;  Good Lord, deliver us.

In all time of our tribulation; In all time of our prosperity; In the hour of death;
 And in the Day of Judgment:  Help us, good Lord.

We poor sinners do beseech You;  To hear us, O Lord God.

And to lead and govern Your holy Christian church in the right way;

To preserve all pastors and servants of Your Church in the true knowledge and understanding of Your Word, and in holiness of life;

To put an end to all godless teaching and causes of offense;

To bring into the way of truth all who have erred and are deceived;

To beat down Satan under our feet;  To send faithful laborers into Your harvest;

To accompany Your Word with Your Spirit and grace;

To raise up those who fall, and to strengthen those who stand;

And to comfort and help the faint-hearted and the distressed:

We beseech You to hear us, good Lord

* Depart, Depart Thou Prince…   242: 6

* Lesson: Matthew 4: 8-11


*Though Devils All the World…  250: 3-4


* Postlude


Job 2: 2-3 And the Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil? And still he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause.” Matthew 4: 8-11 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’” Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
