Psalm 66:1-4 (NKJV)

Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! Sing out the honor of His name; make His praise glorious. Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You. All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; they shall sing praises to Your name.” Selah


Almighty God, we come to worship You with hearts full of joy and hope in this New Year. We rejoice and sing Your praise for You have made us glad. Your unchanging love and faithfulness have followed and kept us safe in every season and in every way. All our praises and glory to Your holy Name. Amen.

Scripture Reading

Read aloud (together if applicable).

R-34: GOD’S WORD (上帝的道)

Psalm 19:7-14 (NKJV)

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.

Who can understand his errors?
Cleanse me from secret faults.
Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins;
Let them not have dominion over me...

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.

Lyrics - I Know Who Holds the Future

Worship through Prayer

  1. I offer my sincere praise and thanksgiving to You for all that You have done for me. You have been so good to me. Never for a moment have You forsaken me. Thank You for keeping all Your promises. Praise be to You. 

  2. As the year begins, I want to sing Your praise. Fill my heart with Your love. Let me be joyful in You always. I do not know what this year holds, but I rejoice confidently for I know You hold my tomorrows. I believe that in You all will be well. 

  3. I rededicate my life to You. Let me be Your instrument. Use me however You desire. I desire Your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Let me be part of Your holy work. Show me the wonders of Your great love as I live for You. 

Self-Reflection & Discussion

  1. Do you read the Word of God? How did reading God's Word prove beneficial to your life?

  2. What do you need to do so that you can commit yourself to reading the Word of God in a consistent manner?

  3. In this time of uncertainty, what promises of God can guide you as you enter 2021?
