Call to Worship
The Lord reigns;
Let the peoples tremble!
He dwells between the cherubim;
Let the earth be moved!
The Lord is great in Zion,
And He is high above all the peoples.
Let them praise Your great and awesome name—He is holy.
Psalm 99:1–3 (NKJV)
Hymn # Psalter 99B The Lord God Reigns in Majesty (new Psalter ¥Hymnbook)
1 The LORD God reigns in majesty; let all the nations quake. He dwells between the cherubim; let earth's foundations shake. Supreme in Zion is the LORD, exalted gloriously. All nations, praise his name with awe: the Holy One is he.
2 The mighty King loves justice well, and equity ordains; he rules his people righteously and faithfulness maintains. O magnify the LORD our God, let him exalted be; in worship at his footstool bow: the Holy One is he.
3 When priests and prophets called on God, he their petitions heard. His cloudy pillar led them on, and they obeyed his word. Tho' sending judgments for their sins, he pardoned graciously. Exalt the LORD and worship him: the Holy One is he.
Call To Confession
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Romans 12:9–14 (NKJV):
Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with You that You may be feared.
Psalm 130:1–4 (NKJV)
Confession of Sins
Let us, therefore, confess our sin, saying together:
Merciful Heavenly Father, pardon us our many sins; the sins we know and the sins hidden from our conscience. Cleanse us from wrong motives and forgive us for feeble obedience. By your Spirit renew our hearts to love you, our minds to know you, and our wills to obey you. For we ask this mercy in the name of your Son who shed his blood for us. Amen.
Word of Assurance
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while
