“Where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the
midst of them.” — Matthew 18:20
Hymn 466 Christ, Thou Art the Sure Foundation
P: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
Our help is in the Name of the Lord,
C (sings): Who made heaven and earth.
P: I confess my transgressions unto You, O Lord,
C (sings): For You forgive the iniquity of my sin.
C: O most merciful God, who has given Your only begotten Son to die for us,
have mercy upon us and for His sake grant us remission of all our sins; and by
Your Holy Spirit increase in us true knowledge of You and of Your will, and true
obedience to Your Word, to the end that by Your grace we may come to
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen!
P: Assurance of God’s forgiveness: Almighty God, our heavenly Father, has
had mercy upon us and has given His only Son to die for us, and for His sake
forgives us all our sins. To them that believe on His name He gives power to
become the sons of God and has promised them His Holy Spirit. He that
believes and is baptized shall be saved. Grant this Lord, unto us all.
C (sings): Amen
P: He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
C: Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
P: I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress—
C: My God, in Him I will trust.”
P: Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler [ bird trapper]
C: And from the perilous pestilence.
P: He shall cover you with His feathers,
C: And under His wings you shall take refuge.
P: His truth shall be your shield,
C: And buckler [small shield worn on the arm].
P: You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
C: Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
P: Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
C: Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
P: A thousand may fall at your side
C: And ten thousand at your right hand;
P: But it shall not come near you,
C: Only with your eyes shall you look and see the reward of the wicked.
P: Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
C: Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
P: No evil shall befall you,
C: Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.
P: For He shall give His angels charge over you,
C: To keep you in all your ways.
P: In their hands they shall bear you up,
C: Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
P: You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra.
C: The young lion and the serpent, you shall trample underfoot.
P: “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
C: “I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
P: “He shall call upon Me,
C: “And I will answer him.
P: “I will be with him in trouble;
C: “I will deliver him and honor him.
P: “With long life I will satisfy him,
C: “And show him My salvation.”
C (sings): Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it
was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be eternally. Amen.
EPISTLE: Romans 6:19b-23 Sin entraps and enslaves. Both original sin
and actual sin take us captive and lead us to death. Original sin is the sin and
guilt we inherit by birth (infected trees produce infected fruit). Actual sins are the
sins we commit–actual disobedient thoughts, words, and deeds in our lives.
However, through Christ we have been gloriously freed from this slavery to sin
and death. We have new life as a gift, opposite of what we deserve! Each day
there is new and sure righteousness through faith in Christ. Thus, we are
forgiven and pure! Now willingly and gladly live to please your Lord! The
wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus, our Lord!
GOSPEL: Mark 8:1-9 The Feeding of the 4000 is often confused with the
feeding of the 5000. Both are recorded in Mark—see Mark 6:32-44 and Mark
8:1-9. The two events, though similar, are distinctly different occurrences.
Mark records both. The point? Be confident that the Lord provides your daily
bread, and be filled with gratitude!
THE APOSTLES’ CREED:
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
I also believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by
the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was
crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again
from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God, the
Father almighty; from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy Christian Church, the communion of
saints; the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and eternal life. Amen!
Hymn 456 Approach, My Soul, the Mercy Seat!
SERMON: Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO OUR FATHER?
Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
C(sings): Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from Your presence; and take not Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of Your salvation; and uphold me with Your free Spirit. Amen.
Lord’s Prayer with Hymn 458 (melody 236 )

Hymn 565 Savior, Breathe an Evening Blessing!
