Virtual Worship -8/2/20

Fruit of the Spirit - JOY - 2 Samuel 6

Welcome to virtual worship for Second Presbyterian Church.

You are invited to gather everyone in your household (pets counts too!) to sit around your computer, tablet, phone, or TV and worship God together. If at all possible for you to do this around 10:00 on Sunday morning, that would be wonderful so we can know that we are worshiping together even though we can’t be together physically. You can follow along with the script – when a video is present, just click on it to listen or even sing along. I have found two song choices for each “hymn” a more traditional organ led music is the first (or on the left) and a more contemporary version or song is the second (or on the right). Choose what is best for you or even listen to both if you prefer.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

One: Trusting in the grace of our loving God, let us together confess our sins. 

All:Holy God, 
as we come into the presence of your divine holiness, we confess our many shortcomings. 
Our hands are not clean; our actions do not glorify you; 
Our hearts are not pure; our motivations do not glorify you; 
Our words are not true; our deceitfulness does not glorify you; 
Our allegiance is fickle; our idolatry does not glorify you. 

By your mercy, O God, give us hands that are clean, hearts that are pure, tongues that are true, and souls that worship you alone, that our whole lives may glorify you. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One: All you who seek God, and who have set your hope on Jesus Christ, hear the good news: we have received forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of God’s grace. As forgiven and beloved children of God, let us set our hope on Christ, and live for the praise of his glory.

All: Hallelujah! Amen.

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION 

All: My the words spoken and the thoughts of each of our heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, our rock and our redeemer. AMEN
