Call to Worship: Based on Psalm 99 (New International Version)

 

The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble;

he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.

Great is the Lord in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations.

Let them praise your great and awesome name, he is holy.

Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool.  He is holy.

 

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,

Samuel was among those who called on his name;

they called on the Lord and he answered them.

He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;

they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool.  He is holy.

 

Lord our God, you answered them;

you were to Israel a forgiving God,

though you punished their misdeeds.

Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain,

for the Lord our God is holy.

Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool.  He is holy.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours.

Now and forever.  Amen.

Closing Prayer: Based on Psalm 96

 

Sing to the Lord a new song;

Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.

We will declare his glory among the nations,

his marvellous deeds among all peoples.

 

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.

Splendour and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

We will say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”

 

We go to rejoice before the Lord , for he comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness.

Because of Jesus, God declares us righteous.

May we be found to be faithful,

may our words and our lives tell of his grace, and of his love.  

 

The Grace

 

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit

Be always with us.  Amen
