Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

Isaiah 2:11-12 (NKJV)

The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up—and it shall be brought low—


You alone, O LORD, are worthy to be exalted on high. There is none like You. No one comes close to You in wisdom, splendor, power and majesty. We give You all praises, honor and glory. You are our God and King. Blessed be Your holy Name forevermore. Amen.

Scripture Reading

Read aloud (together if applicable).


Psalm 1:1-6; 15:1-5 (NKJV)

Blessed is the man

Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Nor stands in the path of sinners,

Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

But his delight is in the law of the LORD,

And in His law he meditates day and night.

He shall be like a tree

Planted by the rivers of water,

That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also shall not wither;

And whatever he does shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so,

But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,

Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,

But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle?

Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

He who walks uprightly,

And works righteousness,

And speaks the truth in his heart;

He who does not backbite with his tongue,

Nor does evil to his neighbor,

Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;

...He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;

...He who does these things shall never be moved.

Lyrics - Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Worship through Prayer

  1. Lord, keep me humble. Expose any sinful pride in me. Help me repent and turn away from evil.

  2. Father, my heart is deeply troubled with the boasting of the haughty and arrogant people around me. May their lips be silenced by Your truth and power. May they not be able to harm others with their scathing words and hurtful ways.

  3. Lord, I know nothing escapes You. I'm thankful that You know all things. You will make right what is wrong. May I find hope and comfort in knowing that any injustices I have suffered will be made right in Your time according to Your purpose.

  4. You are the true and righteous Judge. No one can stand against You. The arrogant ones would be brought low by You. May their humiliation lead them to repentance and reformation. May they give honor to You when You do so. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
