Preparation for Worship: June 16, 2019 Gathering & Preparation “It behooves God’s people not only to come into His presence with a deep sense of awe at the thought of His perfect holiness and their own exceeding sinfulness (cf. Hebrews 12:28), but also to enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise (cf. Psalm 100:4) for the great salvation, which He has so graciously wrought for them through His only begotten Son and applied to them by the Holy Spirit” (Book of Church Order 47-8).

Unison Prayer of Confession There are many times we think we love you well, O God; but upon hearing your call to love you with all our heart, and all our mind, and all our strength, we confess that our love for you is a diluted love, made insipid and flat by lesser loyalties and a divided heart. Our love seems pure only for brief moments; soon our affections are drawn away. How easily our devotion dies. Forgive us; in deep mercy spare us, despite our lost first love for you; in grace rekindle our love for you in seeing anew Jesus’ love for us. Silent Prayer
