all that you have been commanded by the Lord." Acts 10:33
Call to Worship
selected verses Psalm 69
I will praise the name of God with a song;
I will magnify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs.
When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive.
For the LORD hears the needy. Let heaven and earth praise him.

Call to Confession
Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have given me relief when I was in distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
Corporate Confession of Sin
adapted from Psalm 6
O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath. Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled. My soul also is greatly troubled. I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. Please hear my prayer, please forgive all my sins.
Silent Confession of Sin
Assurance of Pardon
The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.
"I Give You Thanks, O LORD'
selected verses Psalm 138
I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul increased.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.
“Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth.”
