OPENING HYMN: 423 “Jesus Refuge Of The Weary”

THE INVOCATION
P.     In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

C. Amen.

APPROACHING THE WORD
P. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

C. The word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.

P. Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

C. The Lord sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction.

P. “The word that goes forth from my mouth shall not return to me empty,” says the Lord.

C. “It shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”

OPENING PRAYER
P. Heavenly Father, we pray that by the power of the Holy Spirit, we will entrust ourselves at all times to your care. If we are persecuted for the sake of Jesus, fill us with the courage and strength to love and pray for those who hate us. Help us to react to suffering with patience so that those who hurt us will see your power at work in our lives and give glory to you. Hear our prayer in Jesus’ name.

C. Amen.

THE PSALM FOR THE DAY:  Psalm 22:6-11
P. But I am a worm and not a man,

C. Scorned by men and despised by the people.

P. All who see me mock me;

C. They hurl insults, shaking their heads:

P. “He trusts in the LORD; let the LORD rescue him.      

C. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him.”

P.  Yet you brought me out of the womb;

C. You made me trust in you even at my mother’s breast.

P. From birth I was cast upon you;

C. From my mother’s womb you have been my God.

P. Do not be far from me, for trouble is near

C. And there is no one to help.

********************
THE OFFERING

HYMN: 425 “When I Survey The Wondrous Cross” (1,2)
    
A RESPONSIVE READING
P. Since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus,

C. By the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh,

P. And, since we have a great high priest over the house of God,

C. Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,

P. With our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

C. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,

P. For he who promised is faithful.

C. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,

P. Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some,


C. But encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

CLOSING PRAYER
Heavenly Father, we pray this night that you will continue to guide us by the power of your Spirit. We pray that we will always honor you by being who we are called to be. Help us always to regard brothers and sisters in Christ as family; that we might always seek to support one another on love. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

THE BENEDICTION
P. The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord lead you as you take up your cross to follow him. The Lord
    grant you salvation and guide your feet in the way of peace.

C. Amen.

CLOSING HYMN:  439 “O Dearest Jesus” (7-9)
