#37 “Let all Things Now Living” verse 1
CALL TO WORSHIP Psalm 89: 1-4
One: I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
All: I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
One: You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
I have sworn to David my servant,
All: I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.
*HYMN # 39 “Great is Thy Faithfulness”
WE CONFESS OUR NEED
*PRAYER OF CONFESSION
The proof of God's amazing love is this: While we were sinners, Christ died for us. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Trusting in God's faithfulness and compassion, let us confess our sin before God and one another.
