CALL TO WORSHIP (Psalm 91)

ONE:   We come search­ing for the pres­ence of God.

ALL:    We long to catch just a glimpse of God in hope that we shall find rest     amidst the storms and tri­als of life which threat­en us.

ONE:   The Lord is our provider and pro­tec­tor, the only One who can res­cue us from

hid­den traps, who can shield us from dead­ly haz­ards.

ALL:    While oth­ers around us strug­gle and fall under the pres­sure and     chal­lenges of life, our faith in God will take us through.

ONE:   The Lord’s pres­ence com­forts us as we turn to Him in prayer.

ALL:    The Lord will come to our aid; He has promised to do so. 

ONE:   Let us express our love for the Lord.

OUR COMMON PRAYER (uni­son) (Romans 10 . 8–13)

O Jesus, you are near us. Your love resides in our heart as we con­fess togeth­er that you are Lord! You have over­come death and offer us sal­va­tion from sin and fail­ure. We trust your promise there is noth­ing in this life that can destroy us. The pow­er of your res­ur­rec­tion is ours as we face life’s chal­lenges. We shall nev­er be put to shame because we believe you have jus­ti­fied us and pro­fess you have, and will, save us. Our life rests in you, Lord; our strength is found in you, Lord; our hope is in you, Lord, you and only you. Amen!
