Jesus, friend of sinners,
you call us to love our enemies,
to do good to those who hate us,
to bless those who curse us,
and pray for those who treat us badly.
Jesus, teacher without peer,
you have turned the world upside down.
Gospel Reading - We have heard for ourselves.
28-29Then the woman left her waterpot beside the well and went back to the village and told everyone, “Come and meet a man who told me everything I ever did! Can this be the Messiah?” 30So the people came streaming from the village to see him.
39Many from the Samaritan village believed he was the Messiah because of the woman’s report: “He told me everything I ever did!” 40-41When they came out to see him at the well, they begged him to stay at their village; and he did, for two days, long enough for many of them to believe in him after hearing him. 42Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe because we have heard him ourselves, not just because of what you told us. He is indeed the Savior of the world.”. . . . .John 4:28-30,39-42
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
