1 Corinthians 3:5-7 (Listen)

What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 489 st. 1,2: Lord of the Church, We Humbly Pray Hymnary.org link

1. Lord of the Church, we humbly pray 
For those who guide us in Thy way 
And speak Thy holy Word. 
With love divine their hearts inspire. 
And touch their lips with hallowed fire 
And needful strength afford. 

2. Help them to preach the Truth of God, 
Redemption through the Savior’s blood, 
Nor let the Spirit cease 
On all the Church His gifts to shower– 
To them a messenger of power; 
To us, of life and peace.
