Step One: Begin with a time of silence to ready your heart and your spirit for worship. (Images taken on Pearl Street this week – the flowers are in full bloom and unbelievable – you may want to check it out soon!)
Step Two: Worship God through song and prayer:
“This is a song I’ve been meaning to bring into our worship services for a while. I love the tone that it sets, and I know that our church will fill out the harmonies. God bless you all as we live separated. Looking forward to coming together again.” Jeff W
I Will Offer Up my Life by Jeff Widenhofer (Matt Redmond)
Prayer: Psalm 23
The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing.
Thank you, Lord, for providing my every need and more.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
Thank you, Lord, for sustaining me and giving me strength and peace.
He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Thank you, Lord, for your gentle corrective and instructive presence in my life.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me,
Your rod and your staff they comfort me.
Thank you, Lord, for your tenacious caring and protective presence.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
Thank you, Lord, that you are Jehovah Jireh, my Provider!
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows!
Thank you, Lord, for your generous gift of the Holy Spirit!
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life!
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever!
Thank you, Lord, for abundant and eternal life. In Jesus name, AMEN.
