**Opening Hymn: It Is Good to Sing Thy Praises 584
** 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: Proverbs 3:1-10
M: My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commands;
C: For length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.
M: Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart,
C: And so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.
M: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
C: In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
M: Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil.
C: It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones.
M: Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase;
C: So your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.
Reading of the Law: Exodus 20:1-17
**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.
