WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 47:6-7

Sing praises to God, sing praises!

    Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

For God is the King of all the earth;

    sing praises with a psalm!

Let’s stand and sing to the Lord our king!

CONFESSION OF SIN – 1 Peter 2:13-15

The Lord commands his people in 1 Peter 2:12

“Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable,

so that when they speak against you as evildoers,

they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.”

In spite of our praises to the Lord,

we often fail to make much of him in our conduct before unbelievers.

Let’s pray and ask the Lord to forgive us for our sins

in not honoring God before those who do not know him.

(Moment for Prayer)

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ezekiel 36:25-28

The Lord declares over his people

I will sprinkle clean water on you,

and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses,

and from all your idols I will cleanse you.

And I will give you a new heart,

and a new spirit I will put within you.

And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

And I will put my Spirit within you,

and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.

You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers,

and you shall be my people,

and I will be your God.

PRAYER Be seated for prayer. End with,

“Let’s all pray the Lord’s prayer from Matt. 6:9 together.”

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done,

Give us today our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.
