Lord God, as we gather together today, help us to worship in faith and trust in your promises. Speak to us through the words of the Bible, so that we would continue to grow in your grace. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Listen: Pay close attention as these verses from the Bible are read aloud.
Praise the Lord and pray in his name! Tell everyone what he has done. Sing praises to the Lord! Tell about his miracles. Celebrate and worship his holy name with all your heart. Trust the Lord and his mighty power. Remember his miracles and all his wonders and his fair decisions. (CEV)

Lord God, give us a strong voice to praise your name and to share the wonders of your loving works with all world. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
