▲ Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, You have poured into our hearts the true Light of Your incarnate Word. Grant that
this Light may shine forth in our lives; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives
and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

WORD
Old Testament Reading 1 Kings 3:4–15
4 And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there, for that was the great high place. Solomon used to
offer a thousand burnt offerings on that altar. 5 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream
by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you.” 6 And Solomon said, “You have shown great and
steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in
righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And you have kept for him this great and
steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. 7 And now, O LORD my God, you
have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know
how to go out or come in. 8 And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen,
a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. 9 Give your servant therefore an
understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able
to govern this your great people?” 10 It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. 11 And God
said to him, “Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the
life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, 12 behold, I
now do according to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you
has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. 13 I give you also what you have not asked,
both riches and honor, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days. 14 And if you will
walk in my ways, keeping my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I
will lengthen your days.” 15 And Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. Then he came to
Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered up burnt offerings and
peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.


Epistle Reading Ephesians 1:3–14
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every
spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the
world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to
himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious
grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in
all wisdom and insight 9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which
he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven

and things on earth. 11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according
to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who
were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. 13 In him you also, when you heard
the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised
Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise
of his glory.

▲ Gospel Reading Luke 2:40 –52

40 And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom. And the favor of God was upon him.
41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42 And when he was
twelve years old, they went up according to custom. 43 And when the feast was ended, as they were
returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, 44 but supposing him
to be in the group they went a day’s journey, but then they began to search for him among their
relatives and acquaintances, 45 and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, searching
for him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to
them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his
answers. 48 And when his parents saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, “Son,
why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress.”
49 And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s
house?” 50 And they did not understand the saying that he spoke to them. 51 And he went down with
them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things
in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.
