Opening – (Northumbria Community)

One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory.

Morning Reading: Psalm 125 (NLT)A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever. Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever. The wicked will not rule the land of the godly, for then the godly might be tempted to do wrong.

O Lord, do good to those who are good, whose hearts are in tune with you. But banish those who turn to crooked ways, O Lord . Take them away with those who do evil. May Israel have peace!

Morning Prayer

O Lord our God: Protect all who trust in  you, that we may stand firm in the face of evil –

+ secure us with your mighty power…
+ secure us with your unerring wisdom…
+ secure us with your unchanging love…

O Lord our God: Protect all who trust in  you, that we may stand firm in the face of evil –

+ provide for our spiritual needs…
+ provide for our daily necessities…
+ provide for our ongoing relationships…
+ provide for our sorrows and grief…

O Lord our God: Protect all who trust in you, that we may stand firm in the face of evil, through the sure foundation of our faith in Jesus Christ, your Son, our Savior, in whose name we pray. Amen.

“Psalm 125” (Those Who trust) – Enter the Worship Circle

Those who trust in the Lord
Are a strong mountain
They will not … not be moved

Those who trust in the Lord
Are as Mount Zion
They will not … not be moved

Though the world moves like mad
You alone are faithful
Jesus, you, you will not be changed

Christ the King, He sets my feet
On a firm foundation
They will not … not be moved

Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, and protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
