“Blessed are you, O LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. 13 And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.


*PRAISE SONGS                   It Is Finished

                                          He Will Hold Me Fast                                      





All: Gracious Lord, we confess that we dishonor you in our words, thoughts and deeds.  Depending on our strength, we stumble.  Glorying in our own  righteousness, we reject you. Turning our faces from you, we desire the things of this world to satisfy us.  We pray now, Lord, for you to forgive all of our many sins; to cleanse the darkness from our lives, and to turn our faces and our hearts back towards you. We pray these things in the name of your most precious son, Jesus Christ.
