Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

1 John 2:16-17 (NKJV)

For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.


O Lord, Maker of all, we worship and adore You. You alone are the source of life and the sustainer of all things both in heaven and on earth. All that we are and all that we have belongs to You. We humble ourselves to give thanks for You alone deserve all glory and honor both now and forevermore. Amen.

Scripture Reading

Read aloud (together if applicable).


Genesis 1:1-5; Psalm 104:24; Isaiah 40:18, 22; Psalm 19:1-3; 103:22 (NKJV)


In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.


Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.


O LORD, how manifold are Your works!

In wisdom You have made them all.

The earth is full of Your possessions—


To whom then will you liken God?

Or what likeness will you compare to Him?


It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,...

Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,

And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.


The heavens declare the glory of God;

And the firmament shows His handiwork.

Day unto day utters speech,

And night unto night reveals knowledge.

There is no speech nor language

Where their voice is not heard.


Bless the LORD, all His works,

In all places of His dominion.


Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Lyrics - Jesus Paid It All

Worship through Prayer

  1. Lord, forgive me for the pride in my heart. Many times I have thought highly of myself and have boasted in my accomplishments. I am nothing without You. I acknowledge that all that I have comes from You. I humble myself and give back to You all praises and glory.

  2. Lord, help me seek to accumulate eternal riches in this life as I walk with You in obedience by faith. Let my earthly security be found in You alone. You know what I need and desire. Thank You for being the loving and gracious Provider. Let me be satisfied in You.

  3. Lord, let not my intelligence and abilities hinder me from knowing You and Your power. Help me uphold the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus, my Lord, compared to gaining worldly wisdom. I offer my intelligence and abilities to You. Freely use them for Your purpose. In Christ, Amen.
