THE GATHERING OF GOD’S PEOPLE
Welcome and Announcements
take this time during the prelude to quiet your hearts
peacefully anticipate the movement of the Holy Spirit.)
Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.
I sought the Lord and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
This poor man called and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
Our help comes from the Lord!
Blessed be the Lord!
*Hymn of Praise
“If It Had
Not Been for the Lord on My Side”
O God our Master and King, be with us this morning as we
come together to worship you and praise your holy name. We
are living in troubling times with many eyes focused on
earthly idols instead of you. There is much distrust in the
leader of our nation and little or no respect between the
people and the police forces. Come Lord Jesus and deliver us
from our fears. Amen
Praise Songs and Choruses
WE TALK TO GOD THROUGH PRAYER
Praises, Joys and Concerns
Morning Prayer and 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, forever and ever. Amen.
