Call to Prayer: Psalm 8:1
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens!
Time of Gratitude
“Give thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph. 5:20).
Take this time to give thanks to God for three (3) specific things from the last 24 hours.
Praying the Lord’s Prayer: “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”
Lord, we are unable to save ourselves. This has been proven without exception. On our own we will plummet further into the hole our own actions, and the actions of others has dug for us. But that is not your way. When we were flailing about helpless, you saved us and put our feet on the rock. In your sovereignty, you provide us a way out and into flourishing. Thank you, Father, that you do not leave us to our own foolish devices. Thank you for saving us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Scripture Reading from the Sermon Series: Acts 2:25-28
- In this passage, how do you see the sovereignty of God in the face of fear?
- How might God be calling you into obedience today?
