A Service of Words & Praise

for the Last Sunday after Trinity

Bible Sunday

 

Welcome

 

Let us worship God

We have come together as the family of God
in our Father’s presence
to offer him praise and thanksgiving
to hear his holy word,
to bring before him the needs of the world,
to ask his forgiveness of our sins,
and to seek his grace.

 

The gospel calls us to turn away from sin
and be faithful to Christ.
As we offer ourselves to him in penitence and faith,
we renew our confidence and trust in his mercy.

 

Confession – kneel or sit

All:  Almighty God our heavenly Father,
we have sinned against you and against our neighbour,
in thought, word and deed,
through negligence, through weakness,
through our own deliberate fault.
We are truly sorry and repent of all our sins.
Forgive us all that is past;
and grant that we may serve you in newness of life
to the glory of your name. 
Amen.

 

May God cleanse you from your sins and restore you in the image of Christ, to the praise and glory of his name.

Amen.

 

Collect for the Last Sunday after Trinity/Bible Sunday

Blessed Lord,
who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:
help us so to hear them,
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,
we may embrace and for ever hold fast
the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever..

 

Ministry of the Word

Refrain:    Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes.

1    Blessed are those whose way is pure, 
who walk in the law of the Lord.

2    Blessed are those who keep his testimonies  
and seek him with their whole heart,

3    Those who do no wickedness,  
but walk in his ways.

4    You, O Lord, have charged  
that we should diligently keep your commandments. [R]

5    O that my ways were made so direct  
that I might keep your statutes.

6    Then should I not be put to shame,  
because I have regard for all your commandments.

7    I will thank you with an unfeigned heart,  
when I have learned your righteous judgements.

8    I will keep your statutes;  
O forsake me not utterly. [R]
