Gathering Around the Word
CALL TO WORSHIP from Psalm 40
I waited patiently for the Lord;
He turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit;
He lifted me out of the mud and mire.
He set my feet on a rock,
And gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth;
He gave me a hymn of praise to our God.
Blessed is the one who makes the Lord his trust.
Here I am! I desire to do Your will, O my God.
Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders You have done.
The things You have done for us are too many to declare.
*HYMN “When Morning Gilds the Skies” # 667
(intro & 4 verses)
*PRAYER OF CONFESSION:
Many are the ways I have failed You this week, O Lord.
I have done things my way rather than consulting You.
I have too often ignored others when I should be looking to their needs. I have not gone the extra mile for anyone but myself.
Forgive me. Restore me. Allow me to desire Your presence above all. Help me to reflect Your Love to my family.
Assist me in sharing Your forgiveness and hope with all whom
I touch and meet. Thank You for constantly forgiving me.
*Time of silent prayer:
*Assurance of Pardon
*Response – Gloria Patri
*The peace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
And also with you
*Passing of the peace
