WE PRAISE THE LORD OUR CREATOR

INTROIT AND BRINGING IN THE LIGHT OF CHRIST

Let this be a time of preparing our hearts for worship

#396  “Brethren, We Have Met to Worship”

Verses 1 & 2

CALL TO WORSHIP

One:     Let us worship the Triune God.

All:      Let us worship the One who spoke in the beginning

             and created something out of nothing.

One:     Let us worship the Triune God.

All:      Let us worship the One who took on the clothing of

humanity to set those who were oppressed free.

One:     Let us worship the Triune God.

All:      Let us worship the One whose Spirit rests continually upon

us, calling us from sorrow-filled endings to bright new beginnings.

*HYMN   #370                                 “This Is My Father’s World”

WE CONFESS OUR NEED

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Great God of all creation, who are we that You are mindful of us?  

You who set the stars in motion, who launched waves crashing against the shore, who knows the heights and depths of the world;

Why do you bother with us? You count the hairs on our heads and call us each by name. You give us your wisdom and you uphold us by your Spirit. You tend to us and care for us, and we do not understand why. We cannot grasp Your love for us, O God, for it is unlike us to be that loving and forgiving.  We become enmeshed by our own needs, wants and desires and we fail to see beyond anything but our own little circles.

Turn us around, O God.  Help us to see as You see, and to reach out as You reach out.  Remind us once again of the sacredness of our ordinary, day-to-day lives.  By Your Spirit, teach us to live truly as beings little lower than angels.  In your mercy, O God, forgive who we are and bless who we will be. Amen. 

 

SILENT PERSONAL CONFESSION

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One:      God’s anger lasts but a moment, but God’s favor lasts a lifetime.  The Lord forgives our shortcomings and sends deliverance through Christ, just as the Lord forgave Saul and             used him to spread the gospel.
All:      Thanks be to God!

 

*PASSING THE PEACE OF CHRIST

*SUNG RESPONSE         “Gloria Patri”             (Avery & Marsh)

Glory be to the Father, and the son, and the Holy ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.
