    Acts 8:1-8
    1 And Saul was consenting to his death. And on that day a great persecution arose against the church in Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the region of Judea and Sama'ria, except the apostles.
    2 Devout men buried Stephen, and made great lamentation over him.
    3 But Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.
    4 Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word.
    5 Philip went down to a city of Sama'ria, and proclaimed to them the Christ.
    6 And the multitudes with one accord gave heed to what was said by Philip, when they heard him and saw the signs which he did.
    7 For unclean spirits came out of many who were possessed, crying with a loud voice; and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed.
    8 So there was much joy in that city.

    John 6:35-40
    35 Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.
    36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe.
    37 All that the Father gives me will come to me; and him who comes to me I will not cast out.
    38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me;
    39 and this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up at the last day.
    40 For this is the will of my Father, that every one who sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day."

    20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
    21 He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.
    22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'"

    Psalms 122:1-9
    1 I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD!"
    2 Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
    3 Jerusalem, built as a city which is bound firmly together,
    4 to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
    5 There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
    6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they prosper who love you!
    7 Peace be within your walls, and security within your towers!"
    8 For my brethren and companions' sake I will say, "Peace be within you!"
    9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.

  • Gospel

    Luke 11:9-13
    9 And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
    10 For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
    11 What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent;
    12 or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?
    13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"
