Worship at Home
March 22, 2020
Have someone pray the following prayer out loud:
We are here to worship and honor you. We trust that you are with us right here, right now.
During these uncertain times, we are glad that we can trust in you. You are the source of our confidence and peace.
Forgive us for any sins we have committed against you, against others, or against ourselves. Teach us to live better and be more like Jesus every day.
As we worship you, fill us with your Holy Spirit, and give us understanding and strength to do your will.
We especially celebrate your Son, Jesus Christ, through whom we have peace with you and the promise of eternal life. Just as Jesus has conquered all things, even death, so all of us who are in Christ are more than conquerors of every challenge that comes our way.
In Jesus' name we pray,
Sing the following song, or any others God moves you to sing. Praise is our gift to God, so sing to him from the heart!
Have someone read the following Scripture out loud.
Haggai 1:5–8 (ESV)
5 Now, therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. 6 You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes. 7 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways. 8 Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says the Lord.
Sermon: "time to Reorient"
Take a moment to pray in your own way. If you're in a group, you can share prayer concerns and have everyone take a turn to pray at least one sentence.
Here are some things you can pray for:
Prayers of praise and gratitude.
That the coronavirus pandemic would soon be over.
For our government leaders to have wisdom and right action to help us deal with this situation.
For everyone working to combat this, especially medical and health professionals.
Healing for those who are sick.
For our church, its leaders and members.
For any other needs you have.
What is one thing God taught you today? What is one thing you can do in response?
Have the head of the household speak this blessing:
May the love of God, the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and the friendship of the Holy Spirit be with us now and always.
Honor God and partner with him to fulfill his mission to the world through the church! Take a moment to give as God moves you to give.
