* Calling Song: “Great is the Lord” TFWS #2022
Great is the Lord and worthy of glory!
Great is the Lord and worthy of praise.
Great is the Lord; now lift up your voice,
now lift up your voice: Great is the Lord!
Great is the Lord, he is holy and just;
by his power we trust in his love.
Great is the Lord, he is faithful and true;
by his mercy he proves he is love.
Great are you, Lord, and worthy of glory!
Great are you, Lord, and worthy of praise.
Great are you Lord; I lift up my voice,
I lift up my voice: Great are you, Lord!

Open my mouth and let me bear

Open my heart ad let me prepare

Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine.

Hymn “Sweet Hour of Prayer” (Verses 1 and 3) UMH #496
Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
and bids me at my Father’s throne
make all my wants and wishes known,
In seasons of distress and grief,
my soul has often found relief,
and oft escaped the tempter’s snare
by thy return, sweet hour of prayer!
Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
to him whose truth and faithfulness
engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since he bids me seek his face,
believe his word, and trust his grace,
I’ll cast on him my every care,
and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.
Sermon: “I Pray for You” Ephesians 3:14-21

*Closing Song: “Standing in the Need of Prayer” UMH #352
Refrain: It’s me (it’s me), it’s me, O Lord, standing in the need of prayer.
(Hallelujah, Lord, it’s me!) Its me (it’s me), it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer.
Not my brother, not my sister, but it’s me, O Lord,
standing in the need of prayer. (repeat)
May the peace of the Lord Jesus go with you
wherever he may send you.
May he guide you through the wilderness,
protect you through the storm.
May he bring you home rejoicing
at the wonders he has shown you.
May he bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.
Thank you for Worshiping with us today!
