Prepare for Worship (24 May 2020)
Am I living for Jesus and making Him known, depending on His power and provision?
Call to Worship: Psalm 104:1-2, 14-15, Psalm 68:34-35
"1 Bless the LORD, O my soul!
O LORD my God, you are very great!
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
covering yourself with light as with a garment,
stretching out the heavens like a tent.
14 You cause the grass to grow for the livestock
plants for man to cultivate,
that he may bring forth food from the earth
and wine to gladden the heart of man,
oil to make the face shine
and bread to strengthen man's heart.
34 Ascribe power to God,
whose majesty is over Israel,
and whose power is in the skies.
35 Awesome is God from his sanctuary;
the God of Israel -- he is the one who gives power and strength to his people.
Blessed be God!"

Here are the songs for this week:
GOD'S WORD IN WORSHIP
Continuing with the sermon series on Luke this Sunday is Pastor Eugene who will be preaching from Luke 9: 1-17 and his sermon is titled "Proclaiming God's Kingdom". As he shares of Jesus supplying His disciples who were sent to proclaim Him, with power and provision, it's the same Jesus who will empower him to speak with boldness and humility. Pray that the Holy Spirit will use his sermon to move in our hearts and lives as we receive his teaching.
PRAYING FOR THE COMMUNITY
Psalm 100:4 -- "Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!". Let us give thanks to God and bless His holy name as we gather virtually to worship Him on Sunday. Certainly God is good and He alone deserves our praise. May we proclaim His steadfast love and faithfulness to those around us. Pray for those who are struggling during this time that God will turn their hearts to Him. Pray for the teachers and students who will be returning to school that God will grant strength and wisdom as they adjust to changes. Pray for the church as we make plans and adapt to the new normal when the CB ends. Here is this week's ministry guide for our prayer and participation.
