Prayer of Confession

The Lord shelters and protects us. The Lord gives us Life! Yet, we need to bring our burdens and Sin and leave them at the foot of the cross. Let us pray:

Merciful God, You sent Jesus to seek and save the lost. We confess that we are those people. We have strayed from You and turned aside from Your way. We are misled by pride, for we see ourselves perfect when we are flawed, and righteous when we are sinners. We have failed to love the least of these among us and we have refused to love our enemy. Forgive us, O God, bring us peace. (Let us confess in silence to God the burdens of our hearts)

Hear the Good News! Jesus walked the Lonesome valley for us. Jesus endured temptations for us. Jesus loves us. In our walk with Jesus we are made new. Thanks be to God!

Scripture Readings

Sermon Seeing the Lives of Others
The Rev. Elizabeth Lockhart

“Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine”

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!

Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God,

born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.

 

Refrain: This is my story, this is my song,

praising my Savior all the day long.

This is my story, this is my song,

praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect communion, perfect delight,

visions of rapture now burst on my sight.

Angels descending bring from above

echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

[Refrain]

Perfect submission, all is at rest.

I in my Savior am happy and bless’d,

watching and waiting, looking above,

filled with his goodness, lost in his love.

[Refrain]

*Affirmation of Faith

The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost,the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Prayers of the People and the Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who are 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.

Prayer

“Guide My Feet While I Run This Race”

Guide my feet while I run this race, yes, my Lord!

Guide my feet while I run this race, yes, my Lord!

Guide my feet while I run this race,

for I don’t want to run this race in vain!

Hold my hand…

Stand by me…

I’m your child…

Search my heart…

Guide my feet…
