**Opening Hymn: Stand Up and Bless the Lord 21
** 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: Habakkuk 3:2; 8-13; 17-19
M: O Lord, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years!
C: In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.
M: O Lord, were You displeased with the rivers, was Your anger against the rivers, was Your wrath against the sea, that You rode on Your horses, Your chariots of salvation?
C: Your bow was made quite ready; Oaths were sworn over Your arrows. Selah
M: You divided the earth with rivers. The mountains saw You and trembled; the overflowing of the water passed by.
C: The deep uttered its voice, and lifted its hands on high.
M: The sun and moon stood still in their habitation; at the light of Your arrows they went, at the shining of Your glittering spear.
C: You marched through the land in indignation; You trampled the nations in anger.
M: You went forth for the salvation of Your people, for salvation with Your Anointed.
C: You struck the head from the house of the wicked, by laying bare from foundation to neck. Selah.
M: Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food;
C: though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls—yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
M: I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength;
C: He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills.
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.
