Preparation

 

Prelude

 

Call to Worship, Psalm 5:11

 

Leader: Let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.

 

Prayer of Adoration

 

Hymns and Songs

 

Jesus Shall Reign, Hymn 441, verses 1-3

 

All To Jesus I Surrender, Hymn 562

 

Lamb Of God

 

Confession of Faith, Heidelberg Catechism 116

 

Leader: Why is prayer necessary for Christians?

 

All: Because prayer is the most important part of the thankfulness which God requires of us.  Moreover, God will give his grace and the Holy Spirit only to those who constantly and with heartfelt longing ask him for these gifts and thank him for them.

 

Call to Confession of Sin, Ecclesiastes 7:20

Leader: Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.

 

Silent Confession

 

Assurance of Pardon, Psalm 103:1-5, 10-12

 

Leader: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!

 

All: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 

Leader: He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.

  

All: For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

Doxology

 

Pastoral Prayer, Dale Walley

 

Scripture Reading, Acts 19:8-20

 

8 And he entered the synagogue and for three months spoke boldly, reasoning and persuading them about the kingdom of God. 9 But when some became stubborn and continued in unbelief, speaking evil of the Way before the congregation, he withdrew from them and took the disciples with him, reasoning daily in the hall of Tyrannus. 10 This continued for two years, so that all the residents of Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.

 

11 And God was doing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his skin were carried away to the sick, and their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them. 13 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists undertook to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul proclaims.” 14 Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva were doing this. 15 But the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?” 16 And the man in whom was the evil spirit leaped on them, mastered all of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 And this became known to all the residents of Ephesus, both Jews and Greeks. And fear fell upon them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was extolled. 18 Also, many of those who were now believers came, confessing, and divulging their practices. 19 And a number of those who had practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So the word of the Lord continued to increase and prevail mightily.

Further Reflection

*Take some time to read the words and sing the songs before Sunday and rejoice in the Lord. This will help you to engage in the singing, especially if the songs are unfamiliar.

*Sin has separated us from God, but Jesus has done away with our sin by his death and resurrection and therefore we can have a full, intimate relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Do you come to the worship service as someone who is separated from God?
