We Are Called to Prayer and Praise by God’s Word

OPENING RESPONSE

Open our lips, O God

And our mouths

will proclaim Your praise

 

Blessed are You, Sovereign God, Creator of all, to You be glory and praise forever.  You founded the earth in the beginning and the heavens are the work of Your hands.  In the fullness of time, You made us in Your image, and in these lasts days You have spoken to us in Your Son, Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.

As we rejoice in the gift of Your presence among us, let the light of Your love always shine in our hearts, and your praise ever be on our lips.

Blessed be God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Blessed be God forever!

 

MORNING SONG

Abba, Father, Hear Your Child

By Charles Wesley

(Tune: Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me)

 

Abba, Father hear Your child,

late in Jesus reconciled;

Hear, and all the graces sh’wer,

all the joy, and peace, and power;

all my Savior asks above, 

all the life and heaven of love.

 

Heavenly Father, Life divine,

change my nature into Thine;

move, and spread throughout my soul,

actuate, and fill the whole:

Be it no longer now 

living in the flesh, but Thou.

 

Holy Ghost, no more delay;

come, and in Your temple stay:

Now Your inward witness bear,

strong and permanent and clear:

Spring of life, Yourself impart;

Rise eternal in my heart.

 

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.  Amen!

We Respond in Faith to God’s Word

THE AFFIRMATION OF OUR FAITH

The Apostle’s Creed

 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

 

I believe in Jesus Christ,

God’s only Son, our Lord, who was:

Conceived by the Holy Spirit;

Born of the Virgin Mary;

Suffered under Pontius Pilate;

was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended to the dead.

On the third day, He rose again.

He ascended to heaven,

is seated at the right hand of the Father, and will come again 

to judge the living and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting.  Amen!
