Prayer

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.
Amen.

Old Testament Reading - A prophet’s appointment

thumb

4The Lord said to me, 5“I knew you before you were formed within your mother’s womb; before you were born I sanctified you and appointed you as my spokesman to the world.”

6“O Lord God,” I said, “I can’t do that! I’m far too young! I’m only a youth!”

7“Don’t say that,” he replied, “for you will go wherever I send you and speak whatever I tell you to. 8And don’t be afraid of the people, for I, the Lord, will be with you and see you through.”

9Then he touched my mouth and said, “See, I have put my words in your mouth! 10Today your work begins, to warn the nations and the kingdoms of the world. In accord with my words spoken through your mouth I will tear down some and destroy them, and plant others, nurture them, and make them strong and great.”

. . . . .Jeremiah 1:4-10
