Call To Worship:
L. Happy are they who conform to the law of the Lord.
P. Happy are they who set their heart on finding God.
L. A sabbath rest awaits the people of God.
P. Let us then make every effort to enter that rest.
Prayer of Approach: (unison)
O God, you do call us to rest from our labours and set our hearts on finding your will for our lives. We gather in praise of your name, seeking to walk in your way. Assured of your presence, bound together by Christ, and made alive by the Holy Spirit, we worship you with our whole being. Amen.
Prayer of Confession: (unison)
God of compassion, have mercy upon us. You have given us your statues, but we follow our own desires. We know of your laws, yet we try to justify our own way. You desire obedience, we practice rebellion. You offer blessing, we search for scapegoats. Make us mindful of how we sidestep your intentions. Set us aright in accord with our design. Amen.
Words of Assurance:
Hear the testimony of the Holy Spirit: "This is the covenant which I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will set my laws in their hearts and write them on their understanding...and their sins and wicked deeds I will remember no more." Let us be thankful and full of joy that God has promised us forgiveness and salvation.
