Pastor David reads Job 28 and offers a prayer from Jerome:
Lord, you have given us your Word for a light to shine upon our path;
grant us so to meditate on that Word, and to follow its teaching,
that we may find in it the light that shines more and more until the perfect day;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Pastor David reads Job 42:1-17 and offers a prayer from John Chrysostom:
I am not worthy, Lord and Master, that you should come under the roof of my soul. Nevertheless, since you desire, O lover of mankind, to dwell within me, I am bold to draw near. You invite me to open the door which you alone have made, that entering in there you may bring light into my darkened mind. I do believe that you will do this.
For you did not throw out the prostitute when she came with tears, neither did you reject the tax collector when he repented, nor did you reject the thief when he sought to enter your kingdom, nor did you reject the persecutor when he repented. But you treated all who came to you in penitence as your friends. You alone are to be blessed, now and for ever.

Pastor David reads Job 41:1-11 and offers a prayer from the Liturgy of St. James:
Let all mortal flesh keep silent, and with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly-minded, for with blessing in his hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth, our full homage to demand.

Lord Jesus, make yourself to me
A living, bright reality.
More present to faith’s vision keen
Than any outward object seen.
