Praise To The Lord

Call to Worship

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks to him who alone does great wonders,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
to him who by understanding made the heavens,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

to him who made the sun and stars
for his steadfast love endures forever;
to him brings his people out of exile
for his steadfast love endures forever;

It is he who remembered us in our low estate,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
and rescued us from our enemies,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

Give thanks to the God of heaven,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
— Adapted from Psalm 136

Confession
Father, you tell us in your Word
that whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.
We confess that we have frequently relaxed our faith.
We have allowed ourselves to become cynical,
and our cynicism has boiled over
with slander, criticism, prayerlessness, and pessimism.
How easily we’ve allowed ourselves
to crumple under the stresses of our lives.
Forgive us for our smallness of faith.
Open our eyes and our hearts to receive your gift;
open our lips and hands to share it with all humanity
in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Assurance
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. I also saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.
Then I heard a loud voice from the throne: Look, God’s dwelling is with humanity, and he will live with them. They will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them and will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; grief, crying, and pain will be no more, because the previous things have passed away.
Then the one seated on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new.”

Praise the Lord!
Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord!

Benediction
Go forth, remembering who you are
and to whom you belong.
Go now to the places where you live work and worship
As ambassadors of heaven.
Go now with the blessing of the Father
That grace of Jesus Christ and the
Power of the Holy Spirit.
The fellowship of the three in one equip you to
Work with ambition
Rest with purpose
And delight in the goodness of God’s creation
Thanks be to God!
Amen.
