Psalm 62


Call to Worship (based on Psalm 62)
For God alone my soul waits in silence
God loves each of as a mother hen protects her young
God alone is my rock and my salvation, and I shall never be shaken
God is our refuge, let us worship God today.

Prayer of Confession: (unison) Loving Jesus, if there is any encouragement from you, then help us not to do things from selfish ambition or conceit,, but let us instead do all things with humility. Help us to act not from our own interests, which are limited, but instead for the interests of others, loving each other as sibling in Christ, we pray. (Silent Confession). Amen

Assurance of Pardon: (Phil 2) Trust God at all times, knowing that God is our caring parent giving us consolation and sympathy, and assuring us in love the good news: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Amen

Prayer of Dedication: Let us go into the world encouraged by the power of the Holy Spirit, and proclaiming the joy of Jesus Christ to one another. Amen.
