Call to Worship

Psalm 86:8-10 (ESV)

 

There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours.  All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name.  For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.

Come Praise and Glorify

 

Come praise and glorify our God,  the Father of our Lord
in Christ he has in heav’nly realms, his blessings on us poured
for pure and blameless in his sight, he destined us to be
and now we've been adopted through his Son eternally.

 

To the praise of your glory
to the praise of your mercy and grace
to the praise of your glory
you are the God who saves

 

Come praise and glorify our God, who gives his grace in Christ
in him our sins are washed away, redeemed through sacrifice
in him God has made known to us, the myst’ry of his will
that Christ should be the head of all, his purpose to fulfill.

 

To the praise of your glory
to the praise of your mercy and grace
to the praise of your glory
you are the God who saves

 

Come praise and glorify our God, for we’ve believed the Word
and through our faith we have a seal, the Spirit of the Lord
the Spirit guarantees our hope until redemption’s done
until we join in endless praise to God the Three in One.

 

To the praise of your glory
to the praise of your mercy and grace
to the praise of your glory
you are the God who saves

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins

Father, we confess that we do not live up to the family name. We are sometimes more ready to resent than to forgive, more ready to manipulate than to serve, more ready to fear than to love, more ready to keep our distance than to welcome, more ready to compete than to help. We do not love one another as we should, and we often do not believe that you love us as you do. Forgive us our unbelief, and make more vivid to us the meaning and depth of your love at the cross. Show us what it really means for us to be your sons and daughters. We ask this in the name of Jesus our righteousness.

Amen.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope

1 John 3:1-3

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.  Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.  And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

Baptized into Your Name Most holy

Baptized into your name most holy,

O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

I claim a place, though weak and lowly,

among your seed, your chosen host;

Buried with Christ, and dead to sin,

Your Spirit e'er shall live within.

 

My loving Father, me you've taken

fore'er to be your child and heir;

My faithful Savior, me you've given

Your righteous, holy life to share;

O Holy Spirit, you will be

a comfort, Guide, and help to me.

 

And I have vowed to fear and love you,

and to obey you, Lord, alone;

Because the Holy Spirit moved me

I dared to pledge myself your own,

Renouncing sin to keep the faith,

and war with evil unto death.

 

My faithful God, your Word fails never,

Your cov'nant surely will abide;

Oh cast me not away for ever,

should I transgress it on my side,

Though I have oft my soul defiled,

in love forgive, restore your child.

 

Yes, all I am and love most dearly

I offer now, O Lord, to you.

Oh let me make my vows sincerely,

and what I say, help me to do.

Let naught within me, naught I own,

serve any will but yours alone.

 

And never let my purpose falter,

O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

But keep me faithful to your altar,

till you shall call me from my post;

So unto you I live and die,

and praise you evermore on high.

Worshiping God by Hearing His Word

John 14:12-14(ESV)

 

Series:    Pray.

Sermon:   In the Spirit

 

 

In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

Ephesians 6:16-20

  

But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.

Jude 20-21

  

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

Worshiping God by Singing

Breathe on Me, Breath of God

Breathe on me, Breath of God;
fill me with life anew,
that I may love what thou dost love,
and do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
until my heart is pure,
until my will is one with thine,
to do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
till I am wholly thine,
until this earthly part of me
glows with thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
so shall I never die,
but live with thee the perfect life
of thine eternity.
