Gathering Around the Word
CALL TO WORSHIP: from Psalm 35
My soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in His salvation.
My whole being will exclaim,” Who is like You, O Lord?”
You rescue the poor from those too strong for them,
You rescue the poor and needy from those who rob them.
Contend for me, my God and Lord.
Vindicate me in Your righteousness, O Lord my God.
May all who gloat over my distress be put to shame;
May all who exalt themselves over me to disgraced.
May those who delight in You shout for joy and gladness.
“The Lord delights in the well-being of His servant.”
My tongue will speak of Your righteousness:
My tongue will lift Your praise all day long.

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION:
Lord, we need You every hour, every moment, every second.
Our biggest sin is not acknowledging Your Presence knowing
You are with us every step of our lives. We are sorry that too
often we only think of You when we are in need, when we are
hurting, when we are in trouble. We think too often of ourselves
and too little about the One who Created us.
Forgive us. Lead us on the crooked pathway through this life.
Help us to turn our eyes to You, not ourselves. You are our
Lord and Savior. Thank you for never deserting us.
