Here Is Our Order of Worship

Following Hard After God.- A.W. Tozer link

O God, I have tasted Your goodness,
and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.
I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace.
I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want You;
I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still.
Show me Your glory, I pray, that so I may know You indeed.
Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul,
‘Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.’
Then give me grace to rise and follow You up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long.
In Jesus name.

Daily morning prayer used in the seventh-century by the church in Spain and Portugal link

“Let our prayer, O Lord, come before You in the morning.
You took upon Yourself our feeble and suffering nature;
grant us to pass this day in gladness and peace,
without stumbling and without stain; that reaching the even-tide without any temptation,
we may praise You the Eternal King: through Your mercy, O our God,
Who is blessed and lives, and governs all thing, world without end.

Scripture Reading:  Luke 8:49-56 (NASB Bible Gateway)

While He was still speaking, someone came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, “Your daughter has died; do not trouble the Teacher anymore.” But when Jesus heard this, He answered him, “Do not be afraid any longer; only believe, and she will be made well.” When He came to the house, He did not allow anyone to enter with Him, except Peter and John and James, and the girl’s father and mother. Now they were all weeping and lamenting for her; but He said, “Stop weeping, for she has not died, but is asleep.” And they began laughing at Him, knowing that she had died. He, however, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Child, arise!” And her spirit returned, and she got up immediately; and He gave orders for something to be given her to eat. Her parents were amazed; but He instructed them to tell no one what had happened.

A fourth-century prayer of adoration of Augustine (354-430) link

“O God Omnipotent,
Who so cares for every one of us, as if You cared for them alone; and so for all, as if all were but one!
Blessed is the one who loves You, and their friend in You, and their enemy for You.
For we only lose none dear to us, to whom all are dear in Him who cannot be lost.
And who is that but our God, the God that made heaven and earth, and fills them, even by filling them creating them.
And Your law is truth, and truth is Yourself. I behold how some things pass away that others may replace them,
but You never depart, O God, my Father supremely good, Beauty of all things beautiful.
To You will I entrust whatever I have received from You, so I shall lose nothing.
You made me for Yourself, and my heart is restless until it rests in You.

Benediction: (Rom. 16:25-27) link

Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ,
according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages
but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations,
according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith
— to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen."

      God was kind enough in our brokenness and in our need, to send what was most precious to Him –His only Son, to restore us to Himself. That preparation being complete, God now generously invites each of us to be apart of His Son’s kingdom both today, and in the hereafter. Will you take the time to accept His invatation? 

    I hope you will.

    All The Best,   🙂
