Step One: Worship the Lord
Song: Just As I Am, Performed by Jeff Widenhofer
Scripture: Lamentations 3:21-26 (read aloud)
But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
his mercies never come to an end;
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul that seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.
Song: “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” Performed by Jeff Mark Widenhofer and Jacob Kravits
Prayer: Based on the 10 commandments (read aloud)
Lord, teach us the grace of your law, and give us life by your Word.
We worship you Lord and you only.
Free us from earthly gods, so we may worship you in spirit and in truth.
Teach us to use your name with honor.
May everyday be a Sabbath rest from sin.
Teach us to love you with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength.
Lead us as children to obey our parents.
Teach us how to correct our children and guide them in the training
and instruction of the Lord.
Work in us kindness and compassion one to another, forgiving each other.
Teach us to use our bodies in ways that are holy and honorable,
abstaining from immorality and impurity.
We commit to doing what we can for our neighbors good,
and work faithfully so that we may share with the poor.
Teach us to speak truth with our neighbor in love,
render judgments that are true and make for peace,
and not devise in our hearts any evil against anyone.
Make us content whatever the circumstances through the strength of Christ.
Lead us into your justice, your mercy, your humility.
Teach us to love our neighbor as ourselves.
