The Help We Have
Call to Worship
Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright.
Give thanks to the Lord with instruments; make melody to him with the harp!
Sing to him a new song; play skillfully and with loud shouts.
For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness.
He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord
Guide us, Lord by your Word and Holy Spirit, that in your light we may see light,
in your truth find freedom, and in your will discover peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Have mercy on us, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercies, blot out our transgressions.
Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity, and cleanse us from our sin.
For we know our transgressions, and our sin is ever before us.
Create in us a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within us.
Cast us not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from us.
Restore to us the joy of your salvation, and uphold us with a willing spirit. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
-from Psalm 51
Assurance of Pardon
God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
—Romans 5:8; Colossians 1:13-14; Romans 5:1, NIV
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus,
the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant,
equip you with everything good that you may do his will,
working in us that which is pleasing in his sight,
through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
