O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers
of your people who call upon you;
and grant that they may both perceive and know
what things they ought to do,
and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them;
through Jesus Christ you Son our Lord
who is alive and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
you have taught us through your Son
that love is the fulfilling of the law;
grant that we may love you with our whole heart
and our neighbours as ourselves;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Readings for Today
Isaiah 50: 4-9a; The Lord’s servant has listened to God and given ear to the teacher. Many hurled insults and physical blows, but he did not retaliate, knowing that God would vindicate and was near. If the Lord helps, who can declare the servant guilty?
James 3: 1-12; Not many should become teachers. They will be judged more harshly. Although small, the tongue is a fire which no one can tame. It blesses God, but also curses those who were made in the likeness of God.
Mark 8: 27-end; Jesus asks his disciples who people say that he is. John the Baptist or Elijah, they reply. He then asks who the disciples say that he is and Peter declares, “You are the Messiah.” Jesus then foretells his death and resurrection and Peter rebukes him. But Jesus tells them that those who want to follow him must take up their cross.
