CALL TO WORSHIP AND LORD’S PRAYER  

Lord God, Almighty and everlasting Father,

You have brought us in safety to this new day:

Preserve us with Your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity;

and in all we do direct us toward the fulfilling of Your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

We know You will be faithful to your name. 

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.

Heavenly Father,

Heal in us Lord, that which is broken; shine Your light in our minds, give strength to our wills and peace in our souls. 

In Jesus Name!  Amen.

SCRIPTURE~    Exodus 20:1-17   New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Ten Commandments

20 Then God spoke all these words, saying,

2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. 

5 You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God,

am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the

third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 

6 but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and

keep My commandments.

7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord 

will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

8 “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 

9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 

10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not

do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female

servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. 

11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and

all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed

the sabbath day and made it holy.

12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in

the land which the Lord your God gives you.

13 “You shall not murder.

14 “You shall not commit adultery.

15 “You shall not steal.

16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
