     Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my pleas for mercy!

     In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness! 

     Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan,

     and he hears my voice. 

     Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you;

     He will never permit the righteous to be moved. 

Psalm 100

1  A Psalm for giving thanks.

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! 

2  Serve the LORD with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing! 

3  Know that the LORD, he is God!

It is he who made us, and we are his;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 

4  Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name! 

5  For the LORD is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations. 

Reading Deut 11:14-32

14 then ‘I will send the rain for your land in its season, early rain and later rain, and you will gather your grain and your wine and your olive oil. 15 And I will give vegetation in your field for your livestock, and ?you will eat your fill?.’ 16 ?Take care? so that your heart is not easily deceived, and you turn away, and you serve other gods, and you bow down to them. 17 And then ?the anger of Yahweh will be kindled against you?, and he will shut up the heavens, and there shall not be rain, and so the ground will not give its produce, and you will perish quickly from the good land that Yahweh is giving to you.

18 “And you shall put these, my words, on your heart and on your inner self, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be as an emblem between your eyes. 19 And you shall teach them to your children by talking about them when you sit in your house and when you travel on the road and when you lie down and when you get up. 20 And you shall write them on the doorframes of your house and on your gates, 21 so that they may multiply your days and the days of your children on the land that Yahweh swore to your ancestors to give it to them ?as long as heaven endures over the earth?. 22 Yes, if you diligently keep all this commandment that I am commanding you ?to observe it?,  by loving Yahweh your God ?by walking in? all his ways and by holding fast to him, 23 then Yahweh will drive out all of these nations ?before you?, and you will dispossess nations larger and more numerous than you. 24 Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, it shall be yours; your boundary shall be from the desert and Lebanon from the river, the river Euphrates, on up to the western sea. 25 No one can take a stand ?against you?; your dread and your fear Yahweh your God will put on the ?surface? of all the land ?where you tread?, just as he ?promised? to you.

26 “See, I am setting ?before you? ?today? a blessing and a curse: 27 the blessing, if you listen to the commandments of Yahweh your God that I am commanding you ?today?, 28 and the curse, if you do not listen to the commandments of Yahweh your God, but rather you turn from the way that I am commanding you ?today? to go after other gods that you have not known.

29 “And it will happen that when Yahweh your God has brought you to ?the land that you are going to?, to take possession of it, then you shall pronounce the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal. 30 (Are they not beyond the Jordan, ?toward the west?, in the land of the Canaanites living in the Jordan Valley, opposite Gilgal beside the terebinth of Moreh?) 31 For you are now about to cross the Jordan to go to take possession of the land that Yahweh, your God, is giving to you, and you will take possession of it and live in it, 32 and you must diligently ?observe? all the rules and the regulations that I am setting ?before you? ?today?.”

     Lord God, heavenly Father, through the prophet Isaiah, You continued the prophetic pattern of teaching Your people the true faith and demonstrating through miracles Your presence in creation to heal it of its brokenness.  Grant that Your Church may see in Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the final end-times prophet whose teaching and miracles continue in Your Church through the healing medicine of the Gospel and the Sacraments; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
