Gathering Around the Word
Prelude Music Director Robert Senay
CALL TO WORSHIP from Psalm 13
How Long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
How Long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
My enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
Look on me and answer me, O Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, so I do not sleep in death.
Yet I trust in Your unfailing love for me;
my heart rejoices in Your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord, the Lord my God,
for my God has surely been good to me.
INVOCATION Dr. Domske
*Hymn “O Worship the King” #41
*PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
.Lord, You have called each of us into ministry when You call us
to share the Gospel. We admit that we often want to shy away
and think that You cannot mean us. We are unsure of ourselves
and we think we are incapable. Or we just fear the response we
may receive from others.
Help us to believe in You. Help us to believe in ourselves.
Forgive us for getting in the way of Your Will.
May Your Will be done in our lives, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
