Week Three
Tuesday Evening

Greeting and Doxology

Because you forgive, we stand in awe.

From the depths
I call to you,
Lord, hear my cry.

Catch the sound of my voice raised up,
If you record our sins,
Lord, who could survive?
But because you forgive we stand in awe.

I trust in God’s word, I trust in the Lord.
More than sentries for dawn I watch for the Lord.
More than sentries for dawn let Israel watch. The Lord will bring mercy and grant full pardon.
Then Lord will free Israel from all its sins.

READING Romans 12:9-12

Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.


Spirit of love, make our love for one another flow out to all in need.
I acclaim the greatness of the Lord,
I delight in God my savior,
who regarded my humble state.
Truly from this day on All ages will call me blest.

For God, wonderful in power,
has used that strength for me.
Holy the name of the Lord!
Whose mercy embraces the faithful,
one generation to the next.

The mighty arm of God
scatters the proud in their conceit,
Pulls tyrants from their thrones,
and raises up the humble.
The Lord fills the starving
And lets the rich go hungry.

God rescues lowly Israel,
recalling the promise of mercy,
the promise made to our ancestors,
to Abraham’s heirs for ever.


We come together this evening to welcome Christ into our hearts as we ask him to intercede on our behalf:
~Christ our hope, hear our prayer!
That God will look after us and protect us from all that hinders our salvation: That the Holy Spirit will ignite the flame of faith in those who do not yet recognize God as the center of their lives: That the cries of the poor, the hungry, the abused and the homeless will be relieved through God’s people: That those who feel alone will find in this community welcome and hospitality: That God will protect us from all harm and lead us to do only good:



It is our confidence in you, O God, that causes us to hope. We have given ourselves to you and know that you hold us in your protective care. May this sure hope give us courage and creativity for ministry, bringing us closer and closer to the realization of your reign. We ask this through Jesus, our companion and guide. Amen.

May God’s blessing be upon us. Amen
May God’s light lead us in the way of Righteousness. Amen.
May our lives be patterned on Christ Jesus. Amen.
