The Worship of God
October 6, 2019
The prelude music is a time for beginning worship. Observing a time of silence and prayer will free the congregation to focus on the worship of God.
The Prelude Mrs. Beth Braun
The Chiming of the Hour
The Greeting and the Lord’s Prayer Miss Becky Wiliford
*The Opening Hymn # 54 Great is Thy Faithfulness
The Scripture Lesson Psalm 37: 1-10 (read responsively)
Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret – it leads only to evil. For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.
The Morning Prayer
