Exodus 16

Word of God; Word of life

Thanks be to God.

Psalm 78:23-29


1. So God commanded the clouds above and opened the doors of heaven,

2. raining down manna upon  them to eat and giving them grain from heaven.

3. So mortals ate the bread of angels;God provided for them food enough.

4. The Lord caused the east wind to blow in the heavens and powerfully led out the south wind,

5. raining down flesh upon them like dust and flying birds like the sand of the seas,

6. letting them fall in the midst of the camp and round about the dwellings.

7. So the people ate and were well filled, for God gave them what they craved.



 John 6

Exodus 16

Psalm 78

The Lord be with you. And also with you.


Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.


Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.


Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
        on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
    as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
    and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours,
    now and forever. Amen.




These are the gifts of God for you--the people of God.


Come, the banquet is ready.
