    1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23

    16For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! 17For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward;but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a commission. 18What then is my reward? Just this: that in my preaching I may make the gospel free of charge, not making full use of my right in the gospel. 19For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, that I might win the more. 22To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.


    Psalms 117:1-2

    1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us;and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!


    Mark 16:15-20

    15And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved;but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons;they will speak in new tongues;18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them;they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.

    is 63:16b-17, 19b;64:2-7

    You, LORD, are our father,
    our redeemer you are named forever.
    Why do you let us wander, O LORD, from your ways,
    and harden our hearts so that we fear you not?
    Return for the sake of your servants,
    the tribes of your heritage.
    Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down,
    with the mountains quaking before you,
    while you wrought awesome deeds we could not hope for,
    such as they had not heard of from of old.
    No ear has ever heard, no eye ever seen, any God but you
    doing such deeds for those who wait for him.
    Would that you might meet us doing right,
    that we were mindful of you in our ways!
    Behold, you are angry, and we are sinful;
    all of us have become like unclean people,
    all our good deeds are like polluted rags;
    we have all withered like leaves,
    and our guilt carries us away like the wind.
    There is none who calls upon your name,
    who rouses himself to cling to you;
    for you have hidden your face from us
    and have delivered us up to our guilt.
    Yet, O LORD, you are our father;
    we are the clay and you the potter:
    we are all the work of your hands.


    ps 80:2-3, 15-16, 18-19

    R/ (4)
    Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    O shepherd of Israel, hearken,
    from your throne upon the cherubim, shine forth.
    Rouse your power,
    and come to save us.
    Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    Once again, O LORD of hosts,
    look down from heaven, and see;
    take care of this vine,
    and protect what your right hand has planted
    the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
    Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    May your help be with the man of your right hand,
    with the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
    Then we will no more withdraw from you;
    give us new life, and we will call upon your name.
    Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.


    1 cor 1:3-9

    Brothers and sisters:
    Grace to you and peace from God our Father
    and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    I give thanks to my God always on your account
    for the grace of God bestowed on you in Christ Jesus,
    that in him you were enriched in every way,
    with all discourse and all knowledge,
    as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you,
    so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift
    as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    He will keep you firm to the end,
    irreproachable on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    God is faithful,
    and by him you were called to fellowship with his Son,
    Jesus Christ our Lord.

    mk 13:33-37

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Be watchful! Be alert!
    You do not know when the time will come.
    It is like a man traveling abroad.
    He leaves home and places his servants in charge,
    each with his own work,
    and orders the gatekeeper to be on the watch.
    Watch, therefore;
    you do not know when the Lord of the house is coming,
    whether in the evening, or at midnight,
    or at cockcrow, or in the morning.
    May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping.
    What I say to you, I say to all: ‘Watch!’"
