CALL TO WORSHIP

One: Our help is in the name of the Lord our God,

the Maker of heaven and earth,

All: the One who comes to our aid in times of need,

who gives us the courage to do what we know is right,

One: the One who invites us to turn away from the influences of the world around us

and confess Him alone as Saviour and Lord.

All: This is our God!

Let’s worship together.

PRAYER OF THE PEOPLE

Will you please join me in affirming our faith through prayer:

Lord, I want to be more holy in my heart. Here is the citadel of all my desiring, where my hopes are born and all the deep resolutions of my spirit take wings.

In this center, my fears are nourished, and all my hates are nurtured.

Here my loves are cherished, and all the deep hungers of my spirit are honored without quivering and without shock.

In my heart, above all else, let love and integrity envelop me until my love is perfected and the last vestige of my desiring is no longer in conflict with thy Spirit. Lord, I want to be more holy in my heart. Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:1-2 https://www.bible.com/bible/111/ROM.12.NIV

RESPONSE TO SCRIPTURE

One: This is the word of God for the people of God.
All: Thanks be to God.
