Entrance         “Hope of the World”                   UMH #178


Word and Response


Prayer for Illumination (unison)

Hope of the world, Hope of all hearts, our hope remains in you especially when hope seems hard. Speak to us through your word.  And sustain us in the hope of the covenant you have written on our hearts. Amen.


Scripture                                                   Jeremiah 31:31-34

Reader:   The days are surely coming,

People: The days are surely coming.

Reader:   When I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.

People: A new covenant.

Reader:   It will not be like the covenant that I made with your ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant you broke, though I was your husband.

People: Not like the covenant we broke.

Reader:   Not like the covenant you broke. But this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days: I will put my law within you...

People: Your law will be within us.

Reader:   I will write it on your hearts; I will be your God.

People: You will be our God.

Reader:   You will be my people.  No longer will you teach one another, or say to each other, "Know the Lord," for you will all know me,

People: We will all know you.

Reader:   You will all know me from the least among you to the greatest; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.

People: You will continually forgive us. These days are surely coming?

Reader:   These days are surely coming.

Prayers of the People and The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
