Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Phillipians 1:2 Confession of Sin
Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.or this
Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Hear us, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock; you who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth (2)
before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might; come and save us. (3)
Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved. (4)
O LORD God Almighty, how long will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people?
(5) You have fed them with the bread of tears; you have made them drink tears by the bowlful. (6) You have made us a source of contention to our neighbors, and our enemies mock us. (7) Restore us, O God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved. (8) You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it.
(9) You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land. (10) The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches. (11) It sent out its boughs to the Sea, its shoots as far as the River. (12) Why have you broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its grapes?
(13) Boars from the forest ravage it and the creatures of the field feed on it. (14) Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine, (15) the root your right hand has planted, the son you have raised up for yourself. (16) Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire; at your rebuke your people perish.
(17) Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised up for yourself. (18) Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name. (19) Restore us, O LORD God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
There was a certain man from Ramathaim, a Zuphite from the hill country of Ephraim, whose name was Elkanah son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephraimite. (2)
He had two wives; one was called Hannah and the other Peninnah. Peninnah had children, but Hannah had none. (3)
Year after year this man went up from his town to worship and sacrifice to the LORD Almighty at Shiloh, where Hophni and Phinehas, the two sons of Eli, were priests of the LORD. (4)
Whenever the day came for Elkanah to sacrifice, he would give portions of the meat to his wife Peninnah and to all her sons and daughters.
(5) But to Hannah he gave a double portion because he loved her, and the LORD had closed her womb. (6) And because the LORD had closed her womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. (7) This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the LORD, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat. (8) Elkanah her husband would say to her, 'Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don't you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don't I mean more to you than ten sons?'
(9) Once when they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh, Hannah stood up. Now Eli the priest was sitting on a chair by the doorpost of the LORD's temple. (10) In bitterness of soul Hannah wept much and prayed to the LORD. (11) And she made a vow, saying, 'O LORD Almighty, if you will only look upon your servant's misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the LORD for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.' (12) As she kept on praying to the LORD, Eli observed her mouth.
(13) Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk (14) and said to her, 'How long will you keep on getting drunk? Get rid of your wine.' (15) Not so, my lord,' Hannah replied, 'I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the LORD. (16) Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.'
(17) Eli answered, 'Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.' (18) She said, 'May your servant find favor in your eyes.' Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast. (19) Early the next morning they arose and worshiped before the LORD and then went back to their home at Ramah. Elkanah lay with Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her. (20) So in the course of time Hannah conceived and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, 'Because I asked the LORD for him.'
In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach (2)
until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. (3)
After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. (4)
On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: 'Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.
(5) For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.' (6) So when they met together, they asked him, 'Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?' (7) He said to them: 'It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. (8) But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.'
(9) After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. (10) They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. (11) Men of Galilee,' they said, 'why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.' (12) Then they returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day's walk from the city.
(13) When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. (14) They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
He went on to tell the people this parable: 'A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. (10)
At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. (11)
He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. (12)
He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out.
(13) Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.' (14) But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. 'This is the heir,' they said. 'Let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' (15) So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. 'What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? (16) He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.' When the people heard this, they said, 'May this never be!'
(17) Jesus looked directly at them and asked, 'Then what is the meaning of that which is written: ''The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone'? (18) Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.' (19) The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.
