Blessed are the Persecuted Matt. 5:10-12

By Jonathan Dodson

Call to Worship

Holy and loving God,
we come to you,
hopes and fears,
convictions and doubts,
pain and joy.

By your Spirit,
help us to see all things
in the light of your Word,
our Lord Jesus Christ.

By your Spirit,
help us to pray honestly,
listen attentively,
and encourage one another warmly.

By your Spirit,
help us grow in the grace and knowledge
of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
who with you and the Holy Spirit
lives and reigns forever.
All glory to you, both now and forever! Amen.


May you linger on the Divine Subjects
Do, the will of the Father
Uncover, Christ in ten thousand places
And join God’s mission in our city
with a habitual vision of his greatness.
