BIBLE VERSE TO MEMORIZE THIS WEEK
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
(* Indicates when to stand, if you are able.)
DEEP BLUE SONG
CALL TO WORSHIP
God of every good gift:
we come to worship today seeking many things.
Some of us are seeking peace,
some are seeking healing,
some are seeking answers,
and others are looking for the right questions.
We trust you, that you will give us
what we need;
food for our deepest hunger. Amen.
* INTROIT #395 “Come In, Come In and Sit Down”
Dear Father, quieten our minds; still our hearts
For your living ways are all we seek
Strengthen our lives; inspire our spirits
In your living waters flow endless grace. Amen.
* HYMN # 372 “Though I May Speak”
PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION
Prepare our hearts, O God, to accept you Word. Silence in us any voices but your own, so that we may hear your Word and also do it; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
