Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the LORD; exult before him!

Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation……O kingdoms of the earth, sing to God; sing praises to the Lord.

Ascribe power to God, whose majesty is over Israel, and whose power is in the skies.

Awesome is God from his sanctuary; the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people. Blessed be God!

Corporate Confession of Sin 

adapted from    Isaiah 59:12-13

O LORD, please hear our prayer. For our transgressions are multiplied before you, and our sins testify against us; transgressing and denying the LORD, and turning our back from following our God, speaking oppression and revolt, and conceiving and uttering from the heart lying words. We humbly ask your forgiveness for our sins. In the name of Jesus Christ our Savior we pray. Amen.

Silent Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon

Psalm 102:16-18a

For the LORD builds up Zion; he appears in his glory; He regards the prayer of the destitute and does not despise their prayer. Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.

"As a Father Shows Compassion"

selected verses      Psalm 103

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love to those who fear him.

As a father shows compassion to his children so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.

Pastoral Prayer

Offertory

Proverbs 11:23-25

The desire of the righteous ends only in good; the expectation of the wicked in wrath. One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.
