Let us pray:
Almighty and Eternal God, look with loving mercy o your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, to be given over to the hands of sinners, and to supper death on the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
The readings for Maundy Thursday are: Exodus 12:1-14; I Corinthians 11:23-26; John 13:1-17, 31b-35.
You can listen to Pastor Jay’s sermon here:
Holy God, source of all love, on the night of his betrayal, Jesus gave us a new commandment, to love one another as he loved us. Write this commandment on our hearts, and give us the will to serve others as he was the servant of all, the same Lord Jesus, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Our worship for the Great Three Days continues tomorrow evening with the Liturgy of the Glory of the Cross, Good Friday, at 7pm.
