O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:
increase and multiply upon us your mercy;
that with you as our ruler and guide
we may so pass through things temporal
that we lose not our hold on things eternal;
grant this, heavenly Father,
for our Lord Jesus Christ's sake.

 

Old Testament

1 Samuel 17:32-49

   32And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.

   33And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.

   34And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:

   35And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.

   36Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.

   37David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.

   38And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.

   39And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.

   40And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.

   41And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him.

   42And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

   43And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

   44And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.

   45Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

   46This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

   47And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give you into our hands.

   48And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

   49And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

 

Epistle

2 Corinthians 6:1-13

   1We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

   2(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

   3Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:

   4But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

   5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

   6By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

   7By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

   8By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

   9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;

   10As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

   11O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.

   12Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.

   13Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.

 

Psalm

Psalm 9:9-20

   9The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.

   10And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

   11Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

   12When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

   13Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:

   14That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

   15The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

   16The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

   17The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

   19Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

   20Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

 

Gospel

Mark 4:35-41

   35And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

   36And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

   37And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

   38And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

   39And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

   40And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

   41And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
