**Opening Hymn: A Mighty Fortress is Our God 26
** 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: Psalm 108:1-12
M: Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
C: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
M: Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases,
C: Who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
M: Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
C: The Lord executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.
M: He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.
C: The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
M: He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever.
C: He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities.
M: For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
C: As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
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.
