GOD IS HOLY
Preparation for Worship (Silent Prayer)
Call to Worship
The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble!
He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
The Lord is great in Zion;
he is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your great and awesome name!
Holy is he!
The King in his might loves justice.
You have established equity;
you have executed justice
and righteousness in Jacob.
Exalt the Lord our God;
worship at his footstool!
Holy is he!
Prayer of Adoration and Invocation - Lord’s Prayer
*Gloria Patri (No. 734)
*Hymn No. 100 Holy, Holy, Holy!
Call to Confession Psalm 11:4-5
The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord's throne is in heaven; his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man. The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.
Let us confess our sins
Prayer of Confession (unison)
Most holy and merciful Father; we acknowledge and confess before You our sinful nature prone to evil and slothful in good, and all our shortcomings and offenses. You alone know how often we have sinned in wandering from Your ways, in wasting Your gifts, in forgetting Your love. But You, O Lord, have mercy upon us who are ashamed and sorry for all wherein we have displeased You. Teach us to hate our errors. Cleanse us from all our faults and forgive our sins. For the sake of Your dear Son. And most holy and loving Father, help us, we pray, to live in Your light and walk in Your ways according to the commandments of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Assurance of Forgiveness: Colossians 2:13-14
And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.
