Saints Peter and Paul Lutheran Church

The Lutheran Herald

The Lutheran Herald, published monthly for the blessing of individual Christians
and for the benefit of independent Lutheran congregations, is an official publication
of the Evangelical Lutheran Diocese of North America (ELDoNA). Launched in the
Fall of 2006 as an occasional newsletter of the diocese, The Lutheran Herald was
reformatted in September 2010 to be a monthly communication of diocesan news
and Christian devotional material for those within our fellowship as well as to
the world. The devotions are written by the Bishop, Pastors and Deacons of the ELDoNA.

Icons of the Life of Christ

The art of our Parish follows the life of our Lord Jesus Christ from the Announcement of His birth by the Angel Gabriel to the Blessed Virgin Mary to His Ascension to sit at the right hand of the heavenly Father. We also have art that pictures the gifting of the Holy Ghost at Pentecost, the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Ghost, the Saints for whom our parish is named: Saints Peter and Paul, and art that shows the precious gifts of the Lord Jesus in His Word and Sacraments: the Preaching of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, Holy Baptism, and our Lord’s Blessed Supper, where He gives us to eat of His Body and Blood in, with and under bread and wine.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead and buried;
He descended into hell;
the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven;
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation;
But deliver us from evil;
For Thine is the kingdom and the power
and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

How the Head of the Family Should Teach His Household to
Pray Morning and in the Evening

In the morning, when you get up,
make the sign of the holy cross and say:
In the name of God the Father, + Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
Then, kneeling or standing, repeat the Creed and the Lord’s Prayer.
If you choose, you may also say this little prayer:
I thank Thee, my Heavenly Father, through + Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son,
that Thou hast kept me this night from all harm and danger;
and I pray Thee that Thou wouldst keep me this day also from sin and all evil,
that all my doings and life may please Thee.
For into Thy hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things.
Let Thy holy angel be with me,
that the wicked foe may have no power over me. Amen.
Then go joyfully to your work, singing a hymn,
like that on the Ten Commandments, or whatever your devotion may suggest.

In the evening, when you go to bed,
make the sign of the holy cross and say:
In the name of God the Father, + Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
Then, kneeling or standing, repeat the Creed and the Lord’s Prayer.
If you choose, you may also say this little prayer:
I thank Thee, my Heavenly Father, through + Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son,
that Thou hast graciously kept me this day;
and I pray Thee that Thou wouldst forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong,
and graciously keep me this night.
For into Thy hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things.
Let Thy holy angel be with me,
that the wicked foe may have no power over me. Amen.
Then go to sleep at once and in good cheer.

How the Head of the Family Should Teach His Household
to Ask a Blessing and Return Thanks

The children and servants shall go to the table reverently, fold their hands, and say:
The eyes of all wait upon Thee, O Lord,
and Thou givest them their meat in due season;
Thou openest Thy hand and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
Then shall be said the Lord’s Prayer and the following:
Lord God, Heavenly Father, bless us and these Thy gifts
which we receive from Thy bountiful goodness,
through + Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Also, after eating, they shall, in like manner, reverently and with folded hands say:
O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good;
for His mercy endureth forever. He giveth food to all flesh:
He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
He delighteth not in the strength of the horse.
He taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear Him,
in those that hope in His mercy.
Then shall be said the Lord’s Prayer and the following:
We thank Thee, Lord God, Heavenly Father, through + Jesus Christ, our Lord,
for all Thy benefits, who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.
