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.

Holy Spirit, you have come to reconcile us to each other, but we resist your work to bind us together. 

We hold onto grudges. Even though we know God has forgiven us in Jesus Christ, we are slow to forgive each other.

We have received grace, but we struggle to share it with others.


Change our hearts, O Spirit, and grant us Christ’s willingness to forgive. 

Forgive us for these and all our sins, as we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE ~ Gloria Patri   Performed by Marie Engle, mezzo soprano, with Ken Rodgers, piano.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost!  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be! 

World without end, Amen, Amen!

“Song of Devotion”  by John Ness Beck

is based on Philippians 3:1-11


I thank my God on ev'ry remembrance of you,

always in ev'ry prayer of mine for you with joy;

I have you in my heart.


And this I pray, that your love may abound

yet more and more in knowledge

and in all judgment,

that ye may approve things that are excellent,

that ye may be sincere being filled

with the fruits of righteousness

unto the glory and praise of God.


I thank my God on ev'ry remembrance of you,

always in ev'ry prayer of mine for you with joy;

I have you in my heart, I have you in my heart.

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.”
