Ellen Hagen, organ
Prelude
- arr. Dale Wood * Call to Worship: Adapted from Psalm 78
Give ear, O people, to God’s teaching; incline your ears to the
words of God’s mouth.
Words that we have heard and known, that our ancestors have
told us.
We will not hide them from their children;
we will tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the
LORD, and the wonders that he has done.
Unison Prayer
O Lord, we come this morning knee-bowed and body-bent
before thy throne of grace. O Lord - - this morning - - bow
our hearts beneath our knees, and our knees in some lonesome
valley. We come this morning like empty pitchers to a full
fountain, with no merits of our own. O Lord, open up a
window of heaven, and lean out far over the battlements of
glory, and listen this morning. Amen.
Pastoral Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer #895
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 trespasses as we forgive
those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory forever. Amen.
