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 - God alone gives strength

Every knee shall bow

Picture by J. Kirk Richards

22Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other. 23I have sworn by myself, and I will never go back on my word, for it is true — that every knee in all the world shall bow to me, and every tongue shall swear allegiance to my name.

24“In Jehovah is all my righteousness and strength,” the people shall declare. And all who were angry with him shall come to him and be ashamed. 25In Jehovah all the generations of Israel shall be justified, triumphant.

. . . . .Isaiah 45:22-25
