Let us worship God, our light and our salvation.

The Lord is the stronghold of our lives.

One thing we ask from the Lord, this only do we seek:

We desire to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of our lives,

to gaze on the beauty of the Lord

and to seek God in his temple.

Let us worship God!

Based on Psalm 27:1, 4 (NIV)

This is my desire to honor You.

Lord, with all my heart I worship You.

All I have within me

I give You praise

All that I adore is in You

 

Chorus:  Lord I give You my heart 
I give You my soul 
I live for You alone 
Every breath that I take 
Every moment I'm awake 
Lord have Your way in me

 

Bridge:  Lord I give you my heart, 

I give you my soul (repeat)

 


PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Merciful God, you pardon all who truly repent and turn to you.

We humbly confess our sins and ask your mercy.

We have not loved you with a pure heart, 

nor have we loved our neighbor as ourselves.

We have been forgiven, but we withhold forgiveness.

Have mercy on us, O God, in your loving-kindness.

In your great compassion, cleanse us from our sin.  Amen.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

 

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.  Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.

 

DEDICATION OF TITHES & OFFERINGS

Merciful God, with joy and thanksgiving we offer what you have first given us—

our selves, our time, and our possessions—signs of your gracious love.

Receive them for the sake of Jesus Christ, who offered himself for us. Amen.

There Is None Like You

Chorus:  There is none like You

No one else can touch my heart like You do

I could search for all eternity long and find

There is none like You

(Repeat chorus)

 

Your mercy flows like a river wide

And healing comes from your hands

Suffering children are safe in your arms

There is none like You

 (Chorus)
