Preparation for Worship

 

*Call to Worship—congregation reads bold print

Great and marvelous are Your works,

   Lord God Almighty!

Just and true are Your ways,

   O King of the saints!  

Who shall not fear You, O Lord,

   and glorify Your name?

 For You alone are holy.

 For all nations shall come and worship before You.

--Revelation 15:3b-4a 

 

* “Gloria Patri” --“Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen, amen.”    

 

*Opening Prayer     

 

*Psalm of Praise— “Psalm 46 second version” (Trinity Psalter 38)

 

*Responsive Reading of Creed—Apostles Creed— (Hymnal #845)

“I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.  I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary.  He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.  He descended into hell.  The third day He rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.  From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.” 

 

Confession of Sin

 

People: “Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.  Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.  Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.  Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, for Your goodness' sake, O LORD.  For Your name's sake, O LORD, pardon my iniquity, for it is great (Psalm 25:4-7, 11).”  Hear now our silent confession sin Jesus’ name. 

 

Scriptural Assurance of Pardon

 

Hear the Good News! For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”  --1 Peter 1:18-19

 

Responsive Psalm Reading—Psalm 90 (Hymnal 816)

 

Pastoral Prayer (ending with a unison recitation of the Lord’s Prayer)   

“Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.   Amen.”
