A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.
Introduction to worship
Let us come today to worship our heavenly Father who, in the midst of our weakness, brings us his strength and power.
THE COLLECT FOR THE NINTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
Almighty God, who sent your Holy Spirit
to be the life and light of your church: Open our hearts to the riches of your grace, that we may bring forth the fruit of thy Spirit
in love and joy and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
The Lectionary Readings (Page 279/281)
Old Testament Reading 1 Kings 19: 9-18
Elijah has just demonstrated the power of God but now faces the wrath of Jezebel, who threatens his life. He flees to Mount Horeb where he encounters God.
New Testament Reading Romans 10: 5-15
Paul deals with the position of the Jews now that the new covenant in Christ has come. Here he asserts that faith in Christ brings salvation.
Gospel Reading St. Matthew 14: 22-33
Having just fed the five thousand, Jesus sends them home and instructs his disciples to set off across the lake without him, as he goes to pray. In the early hours of the morning, the disciples are shocked by a staggering sight approaching them on the water.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Holy Father, who gathered us here around the table of your Son
to share this meal with the whole household of God:
In that new world where you reveal the fullness of your peace,
gather people of every race and language to share the eternal banquet of
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
