Call to Worship: “ from Psalms 26”
Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have led a blameless life.
I have trusted on the Lord without wavering.
Test me, O Lord, and try me, examine my heart;
for Your love is ever before my eyes and my mind.
I walk continually in Your truth.
I do not sit with deceitful men or consort with hypocrites.
I love the house where You live, O Lord.
I love the place where Your glory dwells.
I proclaim aloud Your praise and go to Your altar.
I do not hesitate in telling of all Your wonderful deeds.
My feet stand on level ground;
in the great assembly I will praise the Lord.
* Hymn “Standing on the Promises” # 838
Prayer of Confession (unison)
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, it is Your will that we should love You with heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbor
as ourselves. We continually fail. We confess that our affections continually turn away from You; from purity to lust, from freedom
to slavery, from compassion to indifference, from fullness to
emptiness. Have mercy on us. Order our lives by Your holy word, and make Your commandments the joy of our hearts. Forgive our selfish ways and turn our hearts toward You.
