2 Thessalonians 2:13–17
 But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.  To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.  So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by our spoken word or by our letter.  Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace,  comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word. (ESV)
Call to Worship
 Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
 from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,
 for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.
 Let me dwell in your tent forever!
Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
 For you, O God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
 Prolong the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generations!
 May he be enthroned forever before God;
appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!
 So will I ever sing praises to your name,
as I perform my vows day after day. (ESV)
Prayer of Repentance
Almighty God, who does freely pardon all who repent and turn to Him, now fulfill in every contrite heart the promise of redeeming grace; forgiving all our sins, and cleansing us from an evil conscience; through the perfect sacrifice of Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
Heavenly Father, You have shown us the depths of Your love through Jesus Christ. Because Jesus endured the cross for our salvation, we can trust Him in all things. May we be reminded of the faithfulness and obedience of Christ in our need to stand firm for truth and righteousness. May we be empowered to endure any hostility from the world for His name’s sake. May the words of our mouth glorify Him even on our darkest days. For He is faithful and worthy of all our praise. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen
