** Invocation: I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is as high as the heavens; your faithfulness extends to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.
**Call to Worship: Isaiah 61:5-9
M: Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the foreigner shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
C: But you shall be named the priests of the Lord,
M: They shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast.
C: Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion.
M: Therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.
C: “For I, the Lord, love justice;
M: I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth,
C: And will make with them an everlasting covenant.
M: Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people.
C: All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”
Reading of the Law: Matthew 22:37-40
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
**Prayer of Confession: Almighty and most merciful Father; We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare thou them, O God, which confess their faults. Restore thou them that are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous and sober life. To the Glory of thy holy Name. Amen.
