CALL TO WORSHIP AND LORD’S PRAYER  

Thank You, dear Father, that we have all Your love and mercy already because that is who You are!  

Thank you that we need not, nor cannot, earn Your love or mercy, but can just receive it with a grateful heart.  

Empower us by Your Holy Spirit to share this with others. 

In Jesus Name, Amen..

The Lord’s Prayer  (Click link to listen then close song page to return)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION & ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS

Heavenly Father, 

We ask for Your wisdom, because we do not always understand the good You want for us.  

We ask for Your forgiveness, because we do not always do the good You want for us.  

We ask You to lead us in the paths of Your righteousness as Your Holy Spirit shows us the Way to walk in Your Spirit.  

Thank You for being faithful to forgive us and call us Your children.  

In Jesus' Name,  Amen.

SCRIPTURES

Matthew 5:1-12

The Beatitudes

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

5 “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.

8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
