OUR PREPARATION FOR WORSHIP

Prelude — As the instruments play, let us prepare ourselves for worship as we enter into the presence of the Lord.  Take time to read the “Puritan Prayer” on the back of the bulletin in preparation for worship, and the Silent Prayer here in the order of worship. 

Silent Prayer
    Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: 
       Graft in our hearts the love of your name,
       increase in us true religion,
       nourish us with all goodness, and
        keep us in your great mercy;
    through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen

 

OUR ADORATION OF GOD

Call to Worship—Psalm 110:1-2
    Pastor:  “The Lord said to my Lord, sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”  
    Congregation:  The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion.

OUR CONFESSION OF SIN AND THE MEANS OF GRACE

The Reading of the Law of God

And God spoke all these words saying: I am the LORD your God,
Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
    You shall have no other gods before Me.
    You shall not make for yourself a carved image.
    You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
    Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
    Honor your father and your mother. You shall not murder.
    You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal.
    You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet.

Hear also the words of the Lord Jesus concerning the law.
    You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul,
    and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.
    And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Prayer of confession and forgiveness

Hymn 111 – This is My Father’s World

 

Reading of the New City Catechism 
Q  28:  What happens after death to those not united to Christ by faith?
      A:  At the day of judgment they will receive the fearful but just sentence of condemnation
            pronounced against them.  They will be cast out from the favorable presence of God,
            into hell, to be justly and grievously punished, forever.

Psalter Reading — Psalm 40
To the Chief Musician.  A Psalm of David.

I waited patiently for the LORD;
     And He inclined to me, and heard my cry.
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
     Out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock,
          And established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth—Praise to our God;
     Many will see it and fear, and will trust in the LORD.

Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust,
     And does not respect the proud,
           nor such as turn aside to lies.
Many, O LORD my God, are Your wonderful works
     Which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us
     Cannot be recounted to You in order;
     If I would declare and speak of them,
     They are more than can be numbered.

Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;
     My ears You have opened.
     Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.
Then I said, “Behold, I come;
         In the scroll of the book it is written of me.

I delight to do Your will, O my God,
         And Your law is within my heart.”
I have proclaimed the good news of righteousness
         In the great assembly;
         Indeed, I do not restrain my lips,
         O LORD, You Yourself know.

I have proclaimed the good news of righteousness
     In the great assembly;
     Indeed, I do not restrain my lips,
     O LORD, You Yourself know.
I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart;
     I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation;
     I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth
     From the great assembly.

Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O LORD;
     Let Your lovingkindness and
          Your truth continually preserve me.
For innumerable evils have surrounded me;
     My iniquities have overtaken me,
          so that I am not able to look up;
     They are more than the hairs of my head;
     Therefore my heart fails me.

Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me;
     O LORD, make haste to help me!

Let them be ashamed and brought to mutual confusion
     Who seek to destroy my life;

Let them be driven backward and brought to dishonor
     Who wish me evil.

Let them be confounded because of their shame,
     Who say to me, “Aha, aha!”

Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
     Let such as love Your salvation say continually,
     “The LORD be magnified!”

But I am poor and needy;
     Yet the LORD thinks upon me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
     Do not delay, O my God.
