Lessons and Hymns for Easter 6 C

These are the Scripture lessons you will hear this coming Sunday:

Acts 16:9-15
Revelation 21:9-14, 21-27
John 16:23-33

We Pray to the Father in Jesus’ Name

“In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Jesus has opened the way to the Father so that “whatever you ask of the Father” in Jesus’ name, “he will give it to you” (John 16:23). We pray, therefore, in the confidence that we will be heard and answered, that our “joy may be full” (John 16:24). We pray because the Gospel has been preached to us and the Lord has opened our hearts to believe the Gospel (Acts 16:10, 14). We pray in the name of Jesus because we have been baptized into Him, as Lydia and her household were baptized (Acts 16:15). We have been healed, and we live and walk and pray in newness of life (John 5:8–9). For we stand upon the firm foundation “of the twelve apostles of the Lamb” (Rev. 21:14), and our temple is “the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb” (Rev. 21:22).

These are the hymns we will sing:

Alleluia! Jesus Is Risen (LSB 474)
Jerusalem the Golden (LSB 672)
The Day of Resurrection (LSB 478)
Hark, the Voice of Jesus Calling (LSB 827)
Forth in the Peace of Christ We Go (LSB 920)
