Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

Romans 5:1-5 (NKJV)

"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."


Almighty God, salvation belongs to You. Be exalted in the praises of all people You have redeemed. Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to You forever and ever. Amen.

Scripture Reading

Read aloud (together if applicable).


John 10:7-16; 27-29 (NKJV)

Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

Worship through Prayer

  1. Lord, thank You that I am never alone in this life. Your Holy Spirit remains in me. I never have to face life on my own. Help me to stand firm in this truth and face challenges by faith with full confidence in You.

  2. Forgive me when trials make me lose sight of You. When Your glory is clouded by my lack of faith, hold me fast. Help me overcome my unbelief and restore my spiritual sight to see Your loving presence clearly.

  3. Let me not be deceived into thinking that I can rely on my own wisdom and strength to face challenges. I need You. Apart from You, there is no salvation. You alone are my Helper and Deliverer. Lord, save me from all my troubles. Help!
