Call to Worship (Hear God call you to worship through His Word) - Psalm 136:1-3

Adoration (Pray this praise to God:)

Kindness flows from you, Lord, pure and continual. You had cast us off, as was only just, but mercifully you forgave us; you hated us and you were reconciled to us, you cursed us and you blessed us; you banished us from paradise, and you called us back again; you took from us the fig leaves that had made us so unseemly a garment, and you put on us a cloak of great value; you opened the prison gates and gave the condemned a pardon, you sprinkled us with clean water and washed away the dirt.

Never again, after all this, will Adam blush when you call him, never will he try to hide because his conscience reproaches him, never will he seek concealment under the trees in the garden. The flaming sword will nevermore whirl about the walls of paradise and cut off the entrance from those who approach it.

For us that were heirs to his sin, all has been changed into rejoicing, for man now has access to paradise and even to heaven itself. The whole creation, heaven and earth, is at one again in friendship its former differences forgotten, men join their voices with the angels and echo angels’ praise of God... 

There is no doubt who it is that dresses the bride in her finery; it is of course Jesus Christ – he that is and was and will be. Blessed is he, now and throughout the ages. Amen. (Gregory of Nyssa)


Prayer for Illumination (As you read God’s Word, ask Him to enlighten your mind and heart)

Divine Spirit, illumine to me the words of the Lord. Show me the wealth of glory that lies beneath the old familiar stories. Teach me the depths of meaning hidden in the songs of Zion. Raise me to the heights of aspiration that is reached by the wings of the prophet. Lift me to the summit of faith that is trod by the feet of the apostle. Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. Amen. (George Matheson)

Scripture Reading 

Prayer of Intercession (As you make requests to God, pray this prayer:

Lord Jesus, you are the second and new Adam-clothe me with yourself, that I put away all evil desires and lusts, and crucify and slay in me the dominion of the flesh. Be unto me a strong garment against the icy coldness of this world, that I may be preserved and warmed by you. Without you, all things droop, decay, and die, but in you we live safe, strong, and mighty. As now I cover my body with these garments, so, O Lord, cover and clothe me with yourself, especially my soul, for you are the garment of my salvation and the cloak of my righteousness. And unto you be glory and honor and praise. Amen. (William Loehe)

Lord’s Prayer (Pray the words that Jesus taught us to pray)

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name;

your kingdom come;

your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

For yours is the kingdom, and the power,

and the glory, forever. Amen.
