If you are looking for guidance for a longer time of Sunday worship then you are welcome to use this outline as a starting place.
O Lord, our God, you are worthy of all our praise. You are the God who never fails to keep his promises. We thank you that in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection we see your love, justice, mercy, provision and victory. You are the God who lifts up those who are weighed down. You are the God who provides for your children. Our desire is to praise you as long as we live. Inhabit our praises as we gather together today. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Reading: Mark 10:42-45
42 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Prayers for others: Focus on those who are ill; those who are struggling with anxiety and depression; students and teachers.
“And now may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be us now and forevermore. Amen.”
