and he will be your help and shield,

his saints have proved his faithfulness, Hallelujah!

All you that fear him and adore,

the Lord increase you more and more,

Hallelujah!

 

Both great and small who him confess,

you and your children he will bless,

Yes, we will ever bless his name,

praise you the Lord, his praise proclaim, Hallelujah!

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

 

Romans 5:6-10 (ESV)

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.  For one will scarcely die for a righteous person-- though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die-- but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.  For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.

When I See the Blood

Christ our Redeemer died on the cross.

Died for the sinner, paid all his due.

Sprinkle your soul with the blood of the Lamb,

and I’ll pass over you.

 

Chiefest of sinners, Jesus can save;

All He has promised, surely He’ll do;

Wash in the fountain where sinners can bathe,

and I’ll pass over you.

 

 

When I see the blood of my Holy One,

my wrath shall be quenched;

my judgments be through.

When I see the blood of my only Son,

Yes, I will pass over you.

 

Judgment is coming, all will be there.

Each one receiving justly his due.

Hide in the saving, sin-cleansing blood,

and I’ll pass over you.

 

When I see the blood of my Holy One,

my wrath shall be quenched;

my judgments be through.

When I see the blood of my only Son,

Yes, I will pass over you.

 

O great compassion! O boundless love!

Now crowned with power, Jesus is true;

Find peace and shelter under his blood,

and I ‘ll pass over you.

 

When I see the blood of my Holy One

my wrath shall be quenched;

my judgments be through. 

When I see the blood of my only Son

Yes, I will pass over you.

Series:   Reaching Out Without Freaking Out

                                         Sermon: Pray

 

Acts 1:6-14

So when they had come together, they asked him, "Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?"  He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."  And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.  And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes,  and said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven."  Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day's journey away.  And when they had entered, they went up to the upper room, where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot and Judas the son of James.  All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.

 

Ephesians 6:16-20

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.

 

Colossians 4:2-4

 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison--  that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.

All Glory Be To Christ

Should nothing of our efforts stand

No legacy survive

Unless the Lord does raise the house

In vain its builders strive

 

To you who boast tomorrow’s gain

Tell me what is your life?

A mist that vanishes at dawn

All glory be to Christ

 

All glory be to Christ our king

All glory be to Christ

His rule and reign we’ll ever sing

All glory be to Christ

 

His will be done, His kingdom come

On earth as is above

Who is Himself our daily bread

Praise Him, the Lord of love

 

Let living water satisfy

The thirsty without price

We’ll take a cup of kindness yet

All glory be to Christ

 

All glory be to Christ our king

All glory be to Christ

His rule and reign we’ll ever sing

All glory be to Christ

 

When on the day the great I Am

The faithful and the true

The Lamb who was for sinners slain

Is making all things new

 

Behold our God shall live with us

And be our steadfast light

And we shall e're his people be

All glory be to Christ

 

All glory be to Christ our king

All glory be to Christ

His rule and reign we’ll ever sing

All glory be to Christ
