Prayer of the Day

Stir up the wills of your faithful people, Lord God, and open our ears to the words of

your prophets, that, anointed by your Spirit, we may testify to your light; through

Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.  AMEN.


First Lesson:   Isaiah61:1-4, 8-11                        Lector:  Lois Anderson


Psalm 126

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed.
Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.  Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things

for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.

Restore our fortunes, Lord, like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with

 songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.


Second Lesson:   1John 3.1-3


Gospel:    John 1:6-8, 19-28
