CALL TO WORSHIP

An invitation from God to all humanity to behold and join the story, work, and eternal worship of Jesus.

Revelation 15:3-4
And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”

PSALM READING

Psalm 150
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;

    praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;

    praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound;

    praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;

    praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;

    praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord!

CONFESSION & ASSURANCE

A call to acknowledge and forsake sin against God and one another, and an invitation to receive the assurance of a new identity in the finished work of Christ.

Confession
TOGETHER

Merciful God, You pardon all who truly repent and turn to You
We humbly confess our sins and ask your mercy.
We have not loved you with a pure heart,
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves
We have not done justice, loved kindness,
Or walked humbly with you, our God.
Have mercy on us, O God, in your loving-kindness.
In your great compassion, cleanse us from our sin.
Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy.

Assurance
LEADER

People of God, The Lord is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
And as high as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
And for those who trust in the cross and resurrection of Jesus,
He calls you His sons and daughters
Removing your transgressions as far as the East is from the West Just like a father has compassion for his children,
So the Lord has compassion on you.
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons and daughters of God And have received the adoption by whom we cry, “Abba Father!”

TOGETHER
Thanks be to God!

Intercession

The church’s offering of prayer through Jesus for God to save the lost, right injustice, and shape the world.

-Send forth laborers into the harvest; to prosper their work by the Holy Spirit; to make your saving health known unto all nations; and to hasten the coming of your Kingdom

-Local leaders: That it may please you to rule the hearts of your servants Governor Stitt, the mayors of OKC, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Shawnee, and all others in authority, that they may do justice, and show mercy, and walk humbly before you. 

The Lord’s Prayer
-Adapted From the Great Litany..
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory, forever.
Amen.
