Order of Worship – Faith Fellowship Community Church

The Order of Worship for February 5, 2023

 

Gathering & Preparation

“Let the heavens be joyful, and the earth rejoice; And let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.” Let the sea roar, and everything it contains; Let the field rejoice, and everything that is in it. Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy in the presence of the Lord; For He is coming to judge the earth. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His faithfulness is everlasting. Then say, “Save us, God of our salvation, And gather us and save us from the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name, And glory in Your praise.” Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, From everlasting to everlasting!  Then all the people said, “Amen,” and praised the Lord. ‭ 1 Chronicles 16:31-36

Unison Prayer of Confession 

O most merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; who pardons us when we truly repent and turn to You, we humbly confess our sins and beg Your mercy. We do not love You with a pure heart fervently, and we do not love our neighbors as ourselves. We act unjustly. We dislike mercy. We refuse to walk humbly with You, our God. Have mercy upon us, O Lord, according to Your lovingkindness, according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out our iniquity. Create in us a clean heart, O God. And renew a right spirit within us. Cast us not away from Your presence, and take not Your Holy Spirit from us. Restore unto us the joy of Your salvation, and uphold us with Your Spirit.
