Act of worship



Call to worship

Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!



Opening Prayer

Sovereign God,
you are the giver of life, the root of all our being, the creator of
the ends of the earth, of all that is, and shall be, and has been.
Loving God,
you give purpose to our lives, a sense of meaning to every day.
Living God,
you are with us always, imparting strength, giving guidance,
offering comfort, and so we adore you.
Saving God,
you have come to us in Christ, revealing your goodness, demonstrating
your love, expressing your care, and so we honour you.
Gracious God,
you are the giver of more than we can ever deserve, surrounding us with
your unfailing love, providing for our deepest needs, and so we thank you.
Almighty God,
receive our praise, our thanks, our worship, for we bring it in grateful
response through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.


Please sing (read /pray or proclaim out loud the words of today's songs.)

O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder


O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed;

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!


And when I think that God His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die - I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin:

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!


When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home- what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!




Let us pray

Creator God, we thank you for the world you have given us: so full of beauty, so touched with wonder.
We praise you for its ability to move, astound and refresh us, and above all for the way it speaks of
your love and purpose. Open our eyes afresh, and help us to see your hand in creation and your love
in the daily routine of life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.



Let us say The Lord’s prayer..

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever

Amen.


Listen to today's reading, Matthew 14 verses 22 to 36 with Rev Ali Boddington
and message with Rev Beth Powney - Who is Jesus to you?





Let us pray (after each section you may like to add the names of specific people or places)

Light of the world, shine wherever there is darkness today........

Where there is pain and sorrow, may the brilliance of your love bring hope........

Where there is sickness and suffering, may your healing touch bring sunshine after the storm........

Where there is greed and corruption, may your radiance scatter the shadows........

Where there is hatred and bitterness, may your brightness dispel the clouds........

Lord Jesus Christ, light of the world, rise again upon us we pray,
and illuminate the darkness of this world through your life-giving grace

In your name we ask it.

Amen.
