Songs and Scenes from Sunday, January 15, 2012

TheCrossing_011512_032-2

The Crossing is going through sermon series called, Feeding Your Soul, in which the pastors are encouraging us to go deeper in our relationship with God through consistent prayer and bible study. This morning we journeyed through the very prayer that Jesus Christ gave us in Matthew 6 (with supplemental prayers by Martin Luther) to help us draw near to God as a congregation.

Gathering Song: I Sing the Mighty Power of God – Words: Isaac Watts (1715), Chorus: Scott Johnson and Keith Scherer, Music: Scott Johnson, Keith Scherer, Andrew Camp, Steve Hendershot and Andrew Luley

All praise to You, Eternal God

The Lord’s Prayer: Hallowed be Your Name

Father in heaven, all hearts are open to you, you know all our desires, and there are no secrets hid from your sight: We pray you would cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Holy, Holy, Holy – Words by Reginald Heber (1783-1826)

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity!

Holy (Jesus, You Are) by Jason Ingram, Matt Redman, Jonas Myrin

Your name alone has power to raise us.
Your light will shine when else fades.
Our eyes will look on Your glorious face,
shining like the sun? Who is like you God?

You are holy, holy, holy
God most high and God most worthy.
You are holy, holy, holy
Jesus, You are. Jesus, You are.

The Lord’s Prayer: Your Kingdom Come

Father in heaven, we bring before you the names of those we commend to your kingdom work care. Our friends, co-workers, and family members. Give them your Holy Spirit, so that by your grace they may believe your holy Word and lead godly lives in this present hour and in eternity; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Lord’s Prayer: Forgive our sins

Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Additional chorus: Page CXVI

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to thy Cross I cling;
Naked, come to thee for dress;
Helpless, look to thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Saviour, or I die.

Assurance of Forgiveness based on 1 John 1:9

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

This is God’s gospel promise: to forgive our sins and give us eternal life by grace alone because of Christ’s one sacrifice finished on the cross.

Nothing But the Blood – Words and Music by Robert Lowry, Arrangement by Page CXVI

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
How precious is the flow
that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
nothing but the blood of Jesus.

The Lord’s Prayer: Deliver us from Evil

Father in heaven, You tempt no one. We pray that you would guard and keep us so that Satan, the world, and our sinful nature may not deceive or seduce us into false belief, despair, and other great shame and vice. Although we are attacked everyday by these things, we pray that we may finally overcome them and win the victory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Revelation Song by Jennie Lee Riddle

Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
at the mention of Your Name.
Jesus, Your Name is Power,
breath, and Living Water
such a marvelous mystery.

The Lord’s Prayer: Based on Matthew 6:9-13

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom
and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
