Lord God, Holy Spirit, You are the true and constant support in every need, a Spirit of truth and promise, God’s finger, the water of life, a heavenly fire, which warms cold hearts and ignites them with true love for God. You have revealed Yourself to the apostles with wonderful gifts in a powerful wind and fiery tongues. We ask You now therefore to come into our hearts, to strengthen and gladden our ignorant consciences. Sanctify us with Your blessing and be unto us the holy assurance of our redemption and our salvation. Amen.

—Pr. J. K. Wilhelm Loehe( 21 February 1808–2 January 1872)


The Lord, my God, be praised, My trust, my life from heaven, The Father’s own dear Son,Whose life for me was given, Who for my sin atonedWith His most precious blood And gives to me by faith The highest heav’nly good.

—The Lord, My God, Be Praised (LSB 794:2)

Prayer of the Day

Almighty and most merciful God, the protector of all who trust in You, strengthen our faith and give us courage to believe that in Your love You will rescue us from all adversities; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
