Call to Worship
The Lord is faithful in all his words
and kind in all his works.

The Lord upholds all who are falling

and raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food in due season.

You open your hand;

you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and kind in all his works.

The Lord is near to all who call on him,

to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he also hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord preserves all who love him,

but all the wicked he will destroy.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
–Psalm 145:13-21

Confession of Sin
Heavenly Father, you are our great  King. We are eager to declare our willingness to go where you command and follow wherever you lead. Yet we confess that we are very weak and fickle.  We are easily distracted, constantly diverted from your ways, and quick to follow our own sinful hearts instead. As we plan our futures, we think more of our safety, comfort, and financial profit than we do of laying down our lives for the sake of your kingdom. We are  eager to please our families and friends, and slow to consider your calling and your glory our highest goal.


Teach us what it means to take up our cross daily and follow you. Help us put to death our overwhelming desires to control our own lives in the present and future. Show us the emptiness of owning nice things, the shallowness of the praise of others, and the offensiveness of our enormous pride. Fill us with such a burning passion for your glory that we will suffer any loss, ridicule, inconvenience, or cost, in order to hear your name praised in every land, from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets. Change our selfish hearts. Enlarge them with a love and gratitude towards you so immense and powerful that following you  will be our greatest joy and delight. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness

and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
—Romans 5:8; Colossians 1:13-14; Romans 5:1
