Pastor David reads Jeremiah 10:11-24 and offers a prayer from Philipp Melanchthon:
We give you thanks, omnipotent, ever-living God of truth, eternal Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Creator of heaven and earth, of people, and of all creatures, Sustainer of all things, Giver of all life, order, and wisdom, unfailing Source of help; and to your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, your Word and eternal Image; and to your Holy Spirit, with whom you endowed the apostles at Pentecost. We give thanks to you, O God of holiness, and truth, wisdom and goodness, justice and mercy, purity and loving kindness, for with goodness and wisdom unmatched you revealed yourself to us, sending your Son into the world, destined to assume human nature and to become a sacrifice for us.
We give thanks to you, O God, for gathering your eternal church, for guarding the ministry of your Word, for granting your Holy Spirit, and for giving everlasting life. We thank you, O God, because you gave us all good things, because you alleviated and removed the chastisement we justly deserve, because you bestowed on us all the blessings of soul and body. To you be all glory, honor, praise, and thanksgiving, forever and ever.
