Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

First Lesson: Acts 7:55-60

Psalm: Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16

In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge;
  let me never be put to shame; *
       deliver me in your righteousness.
Incline your ear to me; *
       make haste to deliver me.
Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe,
  for you are my crag and my stronghold; *
       for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me.
Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me, *
       for you are my tower of strength.
Into your hands I commend my spirit, *
       for you have redeemed me,
       O Lord, O God of truth.
15 My times are in your hand; *
       rescue me from the hand of my enemies,
       and from those who persecute me.
16 Make your face to shine upon your servant, *
       and in your loving-kindness save me.”
