*CALL TO WORSHIP  Psalm 113:1-3 (MSG)  (Rick Ogoshi)

Hallelujah!  You who serve God, praise God!
    Just to speak his name is praise!
Just to remember God is a blessing—
    now and tomorrow and always.
From east to west, from dawn to dusk,
    keep lifting all your praises to God!

*OPENING PRAYER

*PRAISE SONGS  Praise Song; Come & Sing Praises

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Wondrous God, who sets suns and moons above us,

mountains and valleys beneath us,

and friends and strangers among us:

how often we have tried to hide from your presence,

how seldom we have looked for your creating hand!

Lord, have mercy upon us.

Wondrous God, who took upon yourself our flesh in Jesus our brother:

how often we have forgotten you,

how seldom we have really loved and followed you!

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Wondrous God, who freely pours out the Holy Spirit:

how often we have ignored your promptings,

how seldom we have asked for your help or accepted your gifts!

Lord, have mercy upon us.  Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.  Your kingdom come, your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.  Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.  For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever.  Amen.
