Preparing for Worship – May 29, 2016

We gather every Sunday at 9AM and 10:45AM to worship Jesus through reading Scripture, prayer, hearing the Word taught and celebrating the Lord’s Supper. For the Christian, the worship of Jesus is not isolated to Sunday morning, but happens throughout the week. In an effort to help you prepare for the gathering of the saints this Sunday morning, please take time to read, listen and pray.

CALL TO WORSHIP

We will begin our service praising God for his greatness. This week we will read from The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers.  You may purchase this book here. Read the prayer below in preparation for our time of praying corporately.

Three in one, one in three, God of my salvation, heavenly Father, blessed Son, eternal Spirit: I adore you as one being, one essence, one God in three distinct persons, for bringing sinners to your knowledge and to your kingdom.

O Father, you have loved me and sent Jesus to redeem me; O Jesus, you have loved me and assumed my nature, she your own blood to wash away my sins, crafted righteousness to cover my unworthiness; O Holy Spirit, you have loved me and entered my heart, implanted there eternal life, revealed to me the glories of Jesus.

Three persons and one God, I bless and praise you, for love so unmerited, so unspeakable, so wondrous, so mighty to save the lost and raise them to glory.

O Father, I thank you that in fullness of grace you have given me to Jesus, to be his sheep, jewel, portion; O Jesus, I thank you that in fullness of grace you have accepted, adopted, bound me; O Holy Spirit, I thank you that in fullness of grace you have exhibited Jesus as my salvation, implanted faith within me, subdued my stubborn heart, made me one with him forever.

O Father, you are enthroned to hear my prayers; O Jesus, your hand is outstretched to take my petitions; O Holy Spirit, you are willing to help my infirmities, to show me my need, to supply words, to pray within me, to strengthen me that I do not grow weary in my earnest supplication.

O triune God, who commands the universe, you have commanded me to ask for those things that concern your kingdom and my soul. Let me live and pray as one baptized into your threefold name.

One God

Creator and redeemer God, author of all existence, source of all blessedness, I adore you for making me capable of knowing you, for giving me reason and conscience, for leading me to desire you.

I praise you for the revelation of yourself in the gospel, for your heart as a dwelling place of pity, for your thoughts of peace towards me, for your patience and your graciousness, for the vastness of your mercy.

You have moved my conscience to know how the guilty can be pardoned, the unholy sanctified, the poor enriched. May I always be amongst those who not only hear but know you, who walk with and rejoice in you, who take you at your word and there find life.

Keep me always longing for a present salvation with comfort and rejoicing, spiritual graces and blessings, and for help to value my duties as well as my privileges, all through your Holy Spirit. May I cherish simplicity and godly sincerity of character.

Help me to be truly sincere before you as in physical appearance I plainly stand before men, to do your will before I profess religion, to leave behind the worldly as I am a part of your church, to set my affections on things above, to shun forbidden follies and vanities, to be a dispenser as well as a partaker of grace, to be prepared to bear evil as well as to do good.

O God, make me worthy of this calling, that the name of Jesus may be glorified in me and I in him.

Rejoice
