Exaudi – Hear When I Cry Aloud

Exaudi – Hear When I Cry Aloud

Exaudi means “hear” and is the first word in today’s Introit. Exaudi reminds us that the Lord has heard our cry and has sent the Holy Spirit – the Helper – to sustain us in this earthly journey. The sermon text is from the book of John starting in chapter 15,

26[Jesus said:] “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. 27And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.

1“I have said all these things to you to keep you from falling away. 2They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. 3And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you.

“I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.”
