The Exalted One

Therefore God has highly exalted him:
and bestowed on him
the Name above every name;
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow:
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord:
to the glory of God the Father.

Gospel Reading - Seeking the lost

12“If a man has a hundred sheep, and one wanders away and is lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others and go out into the hills to search for the lost one? 13And if he finds it, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine others safe at home! 14Just so, it is not my Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish.

. . . . .Matthew 18:12-14

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.
