Prayer

The night has passed and the day lies open before us;
let us pray with one heart and mind:
As we rejoice in the gift of this day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you;
now and for ever.
Amen.

New Testament Reading - Peter and John before the Council

thumb

5 The next day it happened that the Council of all the Jewish leaders was in session in Jerusalem — 6Annas the High Priest was there, and Caiaphas, John, Alexander, and others of the High Priest’s relatives. 7So the two disciples were brought in before them.

“By what power, or by whose authority have you done this?” the Council demanded.

8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Honorable leaders and elders of our nation, 9if you mean the good deed done to the cripple, and how he was healed, 10let me clearly state to you and to all the people of Israel that it was done in the name and power of Jesus from Nazareth, the Messiah, the man you crucified — but God raised back to life again. It is by his authority that this man stands here healed! 11For Jesus the Messiah is (the one referred to in the Scriptures when they speak of ) a ‘stone discarded by the builders which became the capstone of the arch.’a 12There is salvation in no one else! Under all heaven there is no other name for men to call upon to save them.”
