Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION & ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS

Our Heavenly Father,

We confess we have done wrong

We have left undone the good your love calls us to do

We have closed the doors of mercy and kindness

Allowed evil and injustice to flourish in the open

As we pray we know the door of forgiveness is open

Because you are just and righteous, and in Christ we are forgiven.

In the precious Name of Jesus! Amen.

CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE ~ Gloria Patri   Performed by Marie Engle, mezzo soprano, with Ken Rodgers, piano.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost!  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be! 

World without end, Amen, Amen!

SCRIPTURE~    Luke 11:14-20  (NLT)

Jesus and the Prince of Demons

14 One day Jesus cast out a demon from a man who couldn’t speak, and when the demon was gone, the man began to speak. The crowds were amazed, 15 but some of them said, “No wonder he can cast out demons. He gets his power from Satan, the prince of demons.” 16 Others, trying to test Jesus, demanded that he show them a miraculous sign from heaven to prove his authority.

17 He knew their thoughts, so he said, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed

 A family splintered by feuding will fall apart. 18 You say I am empowered by Satan.

But if Satan is divided and fighting against himself, how can his kingdom survive? 

19 And if I am empowered by Satan, what about your own exorcists? They cast out

demons, too, so they will condemn you for what you have said. 20 But if I am casting

out demons by the power of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you.
