Week Four
Tuesday Morning

Greeting and Doxology


Tell the whole world God’s glory, God’s wonder!

A new song for the Lord!
Sing it and bless God’s name,
Tell the whole world
God’s triumph
day to day,
God’s glo
ry, God’s wonder!

A noble God de
serving praise,
the dread of other gods,
the puny
gods of pagans;
for our God made the heavens---
the Lord of ma
jestic light
who fills the tem
ple with beauty..

Proclaim the Lord, you nations,
praise the glory
of God’s power,
praise the glory
of God’s name!
Bring gifts to the temple,
bow down,
all the earth,
tremble in God’s
holy presence.

Tell the nations, “The Lord rules!”
As the firm earth
is not swayed,
nothing can
sway God’s judgment.
Let heaven and earth be glad,
the sea and sea
creatures roar,
the field and its
beasts exult.

Then let the trees of the
forest sing
before the coming
of the Lord,
who comes to judge the nations,
to set the
earth aright,
restoring the
world to order.

READING Joel 2:19a, 21-23a,26a,27a

In response to his people the Lord said: I am sending you grain, wine, and oil, and you will be satisfied. Do not fear, O soil; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things! Do not fear, you animals of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness are green; the tree bears its fruit, the fig tree and vine give their full yield. O children of Zion, be glad and rejoice in the Lord your God. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you. You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I, the Lord, am your God, and there is no other.


May we be alive to the power of God.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s
deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.


God we thank you and praise you for the beginning of another day. Knowing that you meet us everywhere, we pray:
~God of Surprises, show us your face.

For the grace to see you in all the events of our lives, even when they seem like moments of adversity, we pray:
For the grace to see you in all the interruptions of the day , we pray:
For the grace to see your suffering face in all the troubled people we meet today, we pray:
For the grace to see you in the familiar faces that we take for granted each day, we pray:
For the grace to see you in those who are sick, or lonely, or brokenhearted, we pray:



God of wonder, we rise this day to give you praise, for you never stop filling the world with beauty. May our lives reflect your glory to the world. Believing in the power of your name and trusting in your Spirit, we ask this through Jesus the Christ. Amen.

May the Spirit of God find a home in us. Amen
May the Spirit of God animate us. Amen
May the Spirit of God create new hearts in us. Amen
