PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

THE LORD’S PRAYER

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 tres­pass­es, as we for­give those that tres­pass against us. And lead us not into temp­ta­tion, but deliv­er us from evil. For thine is the king­dom, the pow­er, and the glo­ry, for ever and ever. Amen.

SPECIAL MUSIC Tes­ti­fy to Love by Praise Life!

WRITTEN WORD Psalm 100

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Wor­ship the Lord with glad­ness; come before him with joy­ful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his peo­ple, the sheep of his pas­ture. Enter his gates with thanks­giv­ing and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures for­ev­er; his faith­ful­ness con­tin­ues through all gen­er­a­tions.
