Help us, O Lord God, to let go. We too easily cherish the things of this world and lightly consider the claims of eternity. Give us grace today. Give us the power to see ourselves in the light of Your love.

May the gifts we bring today call us to the joy of living for You in a lost and broken world. Amen.

CENTERING HYMN          “Humble Thyself”                    FWS #2131

JOYS AND CONCERNS: Lord, in your mercy….. and that is a…..All: Praise God!

Let’s bow our heads and pray; O Lord of life, there are times when it seems as though there is nowhere to turn, no place to go and no one to trust. Even the sunshine can be like gloom and the midnight hour is as a clock without hands.

O God, come to us in the hour of our greatest trial as the One whose light the darkness cannot overcome. Lead us from places where no mortal knows the way and no earthly power can help. Merciful Savior, You alone can flood the desert with rain, and bring life out of the barren fields. And You alone can bring gladness to the heart forsaken, the spirit lost and the soul extinguished.

Come even now into this assembly, touch every heart with Your Spirit, and lighten every burden with the power of Your touch. Call forth praise from our lips and the world shall know indeed that You are God and there is no other god before You. We are created to know and love You forever. You have made us for Yourself O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in You! Amen!
