Bless the Lord, whose name is to be praised,
Our Father who art in heaven,
who has given us his laws,
to show us the error of our ways,
Blessed is his son, Christ the Messiah,
who redeemed us from having broken them.
Blessed are you, O Holy Spirit,
who assists us in sinning no more,
and sustains us in the way of the Lord,
grant us wisdom and understanding this day.

Old Testament Reading - The God-fearing woman


10 If you can find a truly good wife, she is worth more than precious gems! 11 Her husband can trust her, and she will richly satisfy his needs. 12 She will not hinder him, but help him all her life.


19,20 She sews for the poor, and generously gives to the needy.


26 When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything she says. 27 She watches carefully all that goes on throughout her household, and is never lazy. 28 Her children stand and bless her; so does her husband. He praises her with these words: 29 "There are many fine women in the world, but you are the best of them all!"

30 Charm can be deceptive and beauty doesn't last, but a woman who fears and reverences God shall be greatly praised. 31 Praise her for the many fine things she does. These good deeds of hers shall bring her honour and recognition from even the leaders of the nations.a

. . . . Proverbs 31:10-12,20,26-31
  1. Literally, "Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her works praise her in the gates."

They were faithful until death
and God has given them the crown of life.


Please remember our Prayer Requests

Exalt yourself, O God, above the heavens,
and your glory over all the earth.
Lord, have mercy. E te Ariki, kia aroha mai.
May the fields of the wilderness be rich pasture
and the hills be clothed with joy.
Christ, have mercy. E te Karaiti, kia aroha mai.
Send out your light and your truth, that they may lead us,
and bring us to your holy hill and to your dwelling.
Lord, have mercy. E te Ariki, kia aroha mai.
