Order of Worship for March 22, 2020

Opening Meditation:     Psalm 138:1-8

Singing:  How Firm A Foundation  #94

  1. How firm a foundation, you saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!

What more can He say than to you He has said

To You who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

  1. Fear not I am with you, O be not dismayed,

For I am your God and will still give you aid.

I’ll strengthen you help you and cause you to stand

Upheld by My righteous omnipotent hand.

  1. When through the deep waters I call you to go,

The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow.

For I will be with you, your troubles to bless,

And sanctify to you your deepest distress.

  1. When through fiery trials your pathway shall lie,

My grace all sufficient shall be your supply.

The flame shall not hurt you, I only design

Your dross to consume and your gold to refine

  1. The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,

I will not, I will not desert to its foes.

That soul though hell shall endeavor to shake,

I’ll never, no never, no never forsake

 

Reading from the Westminster Larger Catechism:

  1. Q: What is the chief and highest end of man?    A: Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy him forever.
  1. Q: How doth it appear that there is a God?     A: The very light of nature in man, and the works of God, declare plainly that there is a God; but his word and Spirit only do sufficiently and effectually reveal him unto men for their salvation.
  1. Q: What is the word of God?     A: The holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the word of God, the only rule of faith and obedience.
  1. Q: How doth it appear that the Scriptures are the word of God?     A: The Scriptures manifest themselves to be the word of God, by their majesty and purity; by the consent of all the parts, and the scope of the whole, which is to give all glory to God; by their light and power to convince and convert sinners, to comfort and build up believers unto salvation: but the Spirit of God bearing witness by and with the Scriptures in the heart of man, is alone able fully to persuade it that they are the very word of God.
  1. Q: What do the Scriptures principally teach?     A: The Scriptures principally teach what man is to believe concerning God, and what duty God requires of man.

 

Prayers of Petition: Please make a list of requests and pray together through that list.

Singing: May the Mind of Christ My Savior  #644

  1. May the mind of Christ, my Savior,
    Live in me from day to day,
    By His love and power controlling
    All I do and say.
  1. May the Word of God dwell richly
    In my heart from hour to hour,
    So that all may see I triumph
    Only through His power.
  1. May the peace of God my Father
    Rule my life in everything,
    That I may be calm to comfort
    Sick and sorrowing.
  1. May the love of Jesus fill me,
    As the waters fill the sea;
    Him exalting, self abasing,
    This is victory.
  1. May His beauty rest upon me
    As I seek the lost to win,
    And may they forget the channel,
    Seeing only Him.
