In You, O Lord, I seek refuge;

Let me never be put to shame;

In your righteousness, deliver me!

Incline your ear to me,

Rescue me speedily!

Be a rock of refuge for me,

a strong fortress to save me!

I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love,

Because you have seen my affliction,

and have taken heed of my adversities.

You have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy;

You have set my feet in a broad place.

My times are in your hand;

Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors.

Let your face shine on your servant;

Save me through your steadfast love!

HYMN “The Church’s One Foundation” #545 UMH

Opening Prayer

Holy Giver of new life, you fill the world with your glory,

shining through the countless petals of primrose and petunia,

the heady scent of honeysuckle and lavender,

the ongoing chorus of robin and cardinal and wren.

In this world of overwhelming abundance and overwhelming need,

you have called us to feel your life flowing through us,

to be transformed into a dwelling place, a spiritual house

for Jesus Christ,

who is your chosen and precious cornerstone.

We are your people, called out of darkness into your marvelous light.

Be with us in this hour, for we trust that you are the way, the truth and the life. Amen.

Please send a heart on this video to show your brothers and sisters in Christ we are thinking of them.




Almighty and most merciful God,

From you comes every good and perfect gift.

We give you praise and thanks for all your mercies.

Your Goodness has create us, your bounty has sustained us,

Your discipline has chastened us, your patience has borne with us,

Your love has redeemed us.

Give us a heart to serve you,

And enable us to show our thankfulness

to all your goodness and mercy

by giving up ourselves to your service

and cheerfully submitting in all things to your blessed will;

through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen
