Our help is in the name of the Lord, 
who made heaven and earth.
All: AMEN
 
Come, let us worship and bow down, 
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! 
For He is our God, 
and we are the people of His pasture 
and the sheep of his hand. 
 
Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and 
Christ Jesus our Lord.
 
Let us pray

O God, Designer and creator of time, space, 
and matter. 
We love, worship, and adore you.

Hear us as we confess our sins.
Have mercy upon us, O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercies,
blot out our transgressions.
Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity,
and cleanse us from our sin.
For we know our transgressions,
and our sin is ever before us.
Create in us a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within us.
Cast us not away from your presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from us.
Restore to us the joy of your salvation,
and uphold us with a willing spirit.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those 
who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far he removes our transgressions from us.

Pray with me as we all pray for illumination.
Guide us, O Lord,
by your Word and Holy Spirit,
that in your light we may see light,
in your truth find freedom,
and in your will discover peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


People of God, let us continue to worship 
our good God, 
we have heard His call to worship, 
we have offered prayers, 
heard His Word to us, 
and now through the offering of corporate song
