Facing God (from Psalm 123)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)


Leader: To you we lift up our eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens!

All: As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,

Leader: So our eyes look to the LORD our God, until he has mercy upon us.

All: Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, for we have had more

than enough of contempt.

Leader: Our soul has had more than its fill of scorn, of the contempt of the proud. Let us worship God.


The Lord Is My Light

The Lord is my light and my salvation

The Lord is my light and my salvation

The Lord is my light and my salvation

Whom shall I fear?

Chorus:

Whom shall I fear, whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the strength of my life

Whom shall I fear?

In the time of trouble God shall hide me

In the time of trouble God shall hide me

In the time of trouble God shall hide me

Whom shall I fear?

Chorus

Wait on the Lord and be of good courage

Wait on the Lord and be of good courage

Wait on the Lord and be of good courage

Whom shall I fear?

Chorus


Laying Down Our Burdens & Assurance

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

All: Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you by what we have done and what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart, mind, and strength. We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. Forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways to the glory of your name. Amen.

Leader: The Good News is that Christ has come and Christ will come again. 

All: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God.


In The Lord I’ll Be Ever Thankful

In the Lord I’ll be ever thankful,

In the Lord, I will rejoice!

Look to God, do not be afraid,

Lift up your voices, the Lord is near!

Lift up your voices, the Lord is near

Children's Bible Story


Lectio Conversation (Judges 4:1-9)

(Hold onto these questions while we read our scripture.)

What stands out to you about this text?

The Israelites again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, after Ehud died. So the Lord sold them into the hand of King Jabin of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor; the commander of his army was Sisera, who lived in Harosheth-ha-goiim. Then the Israelites cried out to the Lord for help; for he had nine hundred chariots of iron, and had oppressed the Israelites cruelly twenty years.

At that time Deborah, a prophetess, wife of Lappidoth, was judging Israel. She used to sit under the palm of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim; and the Israelites came up to her for judgment. She sent and summoned Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali, and said to him, “The Lord, the God of Israel, commands you, ‘Go, take position at Mount Tabor, bringing ten thousand from the tribe of Naphtali and the tribe of Zebulun. I will draw out Sisera, the general of Jabin’s army, to meet you by the Wadi Kishon with his chariots and his troops; and I will give him into your hand.’” Barak said to her, “If you will go with me, I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go.” And she said, “I will surely go with you; nevertheless, the road on which you are going will not lead to your glory, for the Lord will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.” Then Deborah got up and went with Barak to Kedesh.


The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

Prayers of the People

Now is the time when we share the prayers on our hearts and minds. If you have a private prayer, you can email them to us throughout the week and the pastoral team will pray over them. 

If you have a prayer, please unmute your mic to share. 

After each prayer, I will lead our response on mute:

Lord in your mercy // hear our prayers

Now I will offer a prayer for the greater community and world. We will end by saying the Lord’s Prayer together in whatever language you prefer. Let us pray.

(muted)

Leader: Just as God/Christ taught us to pray...

All: Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.

We Believe In The Name

(Music & Lyrics by The Porter’s Gate)


We believe in the saving power,

His name is justice, a mighty fortress,

a balm for the weary, our refuge and our strength.

His name is power, our strong deliverer,

we believe in Jesus’ name


We believe in the name (x4)


We believe in the healing power,

in the healing power of the Name

(x4)


His name is justice, a mighty fortress,

a balm for the weary, our refuge and our strength.

His name is power, our strong deliverer,

we believe in Jesus’ name

(x2)


We believe in the name (x4)


What’s his name? Jesus! (x4)

Say his name. Jesus! (x3)

What’s his name? Jesus!


His name is justice, a mighty fortress,

a balm for the weary, our refuge and our strength.

His name is power, our strong deliverer,

we believe in Jesus’ name


We believe in the name (x3)

Sending/Blessing (from 1 Peter 5)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

As we close this time together, let us read this word from the apostle Peter:

All: Let us cast all our anxiety on the Lord, who cares for us. The God of all grace, who has called you to eternal glory in Christ, will restore, strengthen, and support us.

Leader: The steadfast love of God goes with you, the deep and abiding peace of Christ goes with you, and the comfort and guidance of the Holy Spirit goes with you, now and always. Amen.
