Gathering Around the Word
Prelude Music Director Robert Senay
CALL TO WORSHIP from Psalm 6
O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger
or discipline me in Your wrath.
Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint and weak,
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
How long, O Lord, how long? My soul is in anguish.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow.
Turn to me now, O Lord, and deliver me:
Save me because of Your unfailing love.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.
Yet the Lord has heard my cry for mercy;
the Lord accepts my prayer. I shall be saved.
INVOCATION Dr. Domske
HYMN “Holy, Holy, Holy,” Page 1
PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
O Holy God, once again I have failed You this week,
I have expressed my anger to others.
I have been short when I should have been patient.
I have approached each day selfishly, instead of realizing each day belongs to You. I have sinned.
Forgive me. Heal me of my selfishness.
Help me to love my neighbor as myself.
Apparently, I cannot do this on my own.
I need You, Almighty God, to lead me through each day
