Lord Jesus Christ, through suffering and death upon the ignominious tree, you brought life and immortality into the world through the gospel. Grant us in our day to preach the cross, Your suffering and death, that we might enjoy the success of Your Word and the true glory of Your church in weakness. Amen.

For Keith and Farrah Emshoff and Luke as they serve their Lord in a new parish, that they would be grow continually in the faith of the cross

For President Russell Dawn, and the faculty of Concordia University Chicago, that they would be upheld in the mission that Christ has given them

For all those who are seeking work, that they might find labor in keeping with the vocation of the Lord Jesus Christ
