`OPENING PRAYER:.....

                    ..............Rev. Kenneth Godfrey

                    

CALL TO WORSHIP:..

Leader: Let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.


People: You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.


Leader: I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go. I will counsel you with my eye upon you.


People: Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.


ALL: We here at UHPC have come to worship God!


 

HYMN 1:."The Church’s One Foundation" #442

                                              

PRAYER OF CONFESSION:....….(In Unison)

God of love, kindness, and compassion, we return to You seeking pardon and forgiveness for our sins and misdeeds. Where at times we have disrespected or
dishonored the women of mothers in our lives, where we have taken them for granted, or abused them in any way, we repent. Whereas women we have demeaned or abused ourselves, we repent. Restore us
to a place of dignity worthy of respect. Restore us to a place of dignity worthy of respect. Help all women to recognize that they too are daughters of Abraham. As
redeemed people, they are daughters of the King of kings. Have mercy upon all present here for all have fallen short of Your glory. Therefore, we all need Your mercy. Grant us peace and love in our hearts we pray
and help us to forgive others who have sinned against us. By faith and with thanksgiving we offer our prayers in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen!


ASSURANCE OF PARDON:

“The Lord ‘forgives all our iniquities…heals all our diseases, redeems our lives from the Pit, crowns us with steadfast love and mercy, and satisfies us with good as long as we live so that our youth is renewed as the eagle’s; For Jehovah knows our feeble frame and remembers that we are dust. Therefore, God does not treat us as our sins. Amen


PASSING THE PEACE:

Leader: Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another. The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you.

People: And peace be with you also.


“I’VE GOT PEACE LIKE A RIVER”…. #368

I've got PEACE like a river (3Xs) in my soul - repeat

I've got JOY like a fountain(3Xs) in my soul - repeat
I've got LOVE like an ocean(3Xs) in my soul - repeat

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION:....(In Unison)

As we are gathered here today, we ask you, our living God, to shower onto us your wisdom and knowledge.

HYMN 1:."The Church’s One Foundation"                      #442

1. The church's one foundation

is Jesus Christ, her Lord;

she is his new creation

by water and the Word:

from heav'n he came and sought her

to be his holy bride;

with his own blood he bought her,

and for her life he died.


2. Elect from ev'ry nation,

yet one o'er all the earth,

her charter of salvation

one Lord, one faith, one birth;

one holy name she blesses,

partakes one holy food,

and to one hope she presses,

with ev'ry grace endued.


3. Though with a scornful wonder

men see her sore oppressed,

by schisms rent asunder,

by heresies distressed,

yet saints their watch are keeping,

their cry goes up, "How long?"

And soon the night of weeping

shall be the morn of song.


4. 'Mid toil and tribulation,

and tumult of her war,

she waits the consummation

of peace forevermore;

till with the vision glorious

her longing eyes are blest,

and the great church victorious

shall be the church at rest.


5. Yet she on earth hath union

with the God the Three in One,

and mystic sweet communion

with those whose rest is won:

O happy ones and holy!

Lord, give us grace that we,

like them, the meek and lowly,

on high may dwell with thee.


------------------------------------------------------

HYMN 2:...."What a friend we have in                                Jesus" #409

1. What a friend we have in Jesus,

all our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry

everything to God in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit,

O what needless pain we bear,

all because we do not carry

everything to God in prayer!


2. Have we trials and temptations?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged;

take it to the Lord in prayer!

Can we find a friend so faithful

who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness;

take it to the Lord in prayer!


3. Are we weak and heavy laden,

cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge--

take it to the Lord in prayer!

Do your friends despise, forsake you?

Take it to the Lord in prayer!

In his arms he'll take and shield you;

you will find a solace there.
