Lord’s Day Worship – May 24, 2020

Responsive Reading

Pastor:  O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
All:  My soul thirsts for you, my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Pastor:  Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.
All:  So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.
Pastor:  My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food
All:  and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
Pastor:  when I remember you upon my bed
All:  and meditate on you in the watches of the night.
Pastor:  For you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
All:  My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

Scriptures

Acts 13:1-3; 14:21-28

Now in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.

21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city and made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch, 22 strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, “We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God.” 23 So when they had appointed elders in every church, and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed. 24 And after they had passed through Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia. 25 Now when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia. 26 From there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work which they had completed.

27 Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 So they stayed there a long time with the disciples.

THEME:  “Fasting, Praying and the Holy Spirit”

Prayers

LORD JESUS,

I am blind, be thou my light,
    ignorant, be thou my wisdom,
    self-willed, be thou my mind.
Open my ear to grasp quickly thy Spirit’s voice,
  and delightfully run after his beckoning hand;
Melt my conscience that no hardness remain,
  make it alive to evil’s slightest touch;
When Satan approaches may I flee to thy wounds,
  and there cease to tremble at all alarms.
Be my good shepherd to lead me into
    the green pastures of thy Word,
  and cause me to lie down beside the rivers
    of its comforts.
Fill me with peace, that no disquieting worldly gales
  may ruffle the calm surface of my soul.
Thy cross was upraised to be my refuge,
Thy blood streamed forth to wash me clean,
Thy death occurred to give me a surety,
Thy name is my property to save me,
By thee all heaven is poured into my heart,
  but it is too narrow to comprehend thy love.
I was a stranger, an outcast, a slave, a rebel,
  but thy cross has brought me near,
    has softened my heart,
    has made me thy Father’s child,
    has admitted me to thy family,
    has made me joint-heir with thyself.
O that I may love thee as thou lovest me,
  that I may walk worthy of thee, my Lord,
  that I may reflect the image of heaven’s first-born.
May I always see thy beauty with the clear eye
    of faith,
  and feel the power of thy Spirit in my heart,
  for unless he move mightily in me
  no inward fire will be kindled.


Valley of Vision – “Need of Jesus”

CONFESSIONS

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary;
suffered under Pontius Pilate;
was crucified, dead, and buried;
he descended into hell;1 the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from there he shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit;
the holy catholic2 church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting. Amen.

SONGS

“Holy, Holy, Holy” (318)

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy see,
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who wert and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

“O Lord, My God, Most Earnestly” (111)

1 O LORD, my God, most earnestly
I seek your holy face,
within your house again to see
the glories of your grace.
Apart from you I long and thirst,
and naught can satisfy;
I wander in a desert land
where all the streams are dry.

2 The loving-kindness of my God
is more than life to me,
so I will praise you all my days
and pray continually.
In you my soul is satisfied,
my darkness turns to light,
and joyful meditations fill
the watches of the night.

3 Beneath the shadow of your wings
I sing my joy and praise.
Your right hand is my strong support
through troubled nights and days.
All those who seek my life will fall;
my life is in your hand.
God’s king and people will rejoice;
in victory they will stand.

“Speak, O Lord”

Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of Your Holy Word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.

Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory.

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of pow’r that can never fail—
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us—
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we’ll stand on Your promises,
And by faith we’ll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory.

“Take My Life and Let It Be” (462)
Take my life and lit it be
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of thy love
At the impulse of thy love

Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for thee
Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my King
Always only for my King

Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages for thee
Take my silver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Not a mite would I withhold

Take my love my God I pour
at thy feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be
Ever only all for thee
Ever only all for thee

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to thee
Take my self and I will be
Ever only all for thee
Ever only all for thee
