Greeting and Announcements Reverend Dr. Cathy Cook
*Responsive Intent (Psalms 9, 27, 23 and 46)
God is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
We gather here to seek assurance.
God is our light and our salvation; whom shall we fear? God is the stronghold of our lives; of whom shall we be afraid?
We gather here to hold onto hope.
Even though we walk through the darkest valleys, we fear no evil; for God is with us, comforting us.
We gather here to find peace.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore, we shall not fear.
*Hymn O God, Our Help In Ages Past NCH #25
Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations
Prayers of the People Yarabba Salami Anne Lipe
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kin-dom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kin-dom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
