Preparation for Worship

For the Beauty of the Earth
(Arr. by Kenon D. Renfrow)
(Please take this time to quietly meditate on the following Scripture passage as you prepare your heart to worship the Lord.)
 
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:3-6 (ESV)

Call to Worship

Psalm 8 (ESV)

(As God’s Word calls us to worship, let’s shout these words to one another recognizing that our worship is a response to God’s gracious call.)
 
Leader:
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
 
People:
You have set your glory above the heavens.
 
Leader:
Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
 
People:
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
 
Leader:
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
 
People:
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet.
 
ALL:
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Hymn of Praise #44

How Great Thou Art

(By Stuart K. Hine, 1949)

 
O Lord my God,
when I in awesome wonder
consider all
the worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars,
I hear the rolling thunder,
thy pow’r thro’out
the universe displayed.
 
Then sings my soul,
my savior God, to Thee:
How great Thou art,
how great Thou art!
[repeat]
 
When thro’ the woods
and forest glades I wander
and hear the birds
sing sweetly in the trees,
when I look down
from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear thy brook
and feel the gentle breeze;
 
Then sings my soul,
my savior God, to Thee:
How great Thou art,
how great Thou art!
[repeat]

Prayer of Adoration

Song of Praise

Abide with Me

(By David Crowder, Jason Ingram, Matt Maher, Matt Redman; CCLI #7038447)
 
I have a home, eternal home
But for now I walk this broken world
You walked it first, You know our pain
But you know hope can
Rise again from the grave.
 
Abide with me
Abide with me, don’t let me fall
And don’t let go
Walk with me
And never leave
Ever close, God abide with me.
 
There in the night,
Gethsemane before the cross
Before the nails, overwhelmed
Alone you prayed
You met us in our suffering
And bore our shame.
 
Abide with me
Abide with me, don’t let me fall
And don’t let go
Walk with me
And never leave
Ever close, God abide with me.
 
O love that will not ever let me go!
Love that will not ever let me go!
You never let me go!
Love that will not ever let me go!
 
And up ahead eternity
We’ll weep no more and sing for joy,
Abide with me
We’ll weep no more and sing for joy,
Abide with me.
 
Abide with me
Abide with me, don’t let me fall
And don’t let go
Walk with me
And never leave
Ever close, God abide with me.

Worship in Song

There Is a Fountain (Full of Love)

(By Adrian Disch, Edwin Othello Excell, Lowell Mason, Shane Barnard, William Cowper; CCLI #7125088)
 
There is a fountain filled with blood,
drawn from Immanuel’s veins;
and sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
lose all their guilty stains:
lose all their guilty stains,
lose all their guilty stains,
and sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
lose all their guilty stains.
 
The dying thief rejoiced to see
that fountain in his day
and there have I, vile as he.
washed all my sins away:
Washed all my sins away,
washed all my sins away;
and there have I, though vile as he,
washed all my sins away.
 
Hallelujah fountain full of love for us
Poured out on us
Hallelujah fountain full of love for us
Poured out on us
 
E’er since by faith I saw the stream
your flowing wounds supply;
redeeming love has been my theme,
and shall be till I die:
and shall be till I die,
and shall be till I die;
redeeming love has been my theme,
and shall be till I die.

Prayer of Confession

O Lord, You alone know how often we have offended You and hurt the lives of others. Forgive us, O Lord, for every unkind thought, every untrue word, every wrong act. Forgive us, for we have been selfish, and have not thought of the needs of others. Forgive us for our ingratitude, our neglect of prayer, our carelessness in the use of money, our forgetfulness of our sacred vows, the turning of our eyes away from the issues of the life of the unborn, and our neglect of those who are suffering the effects of old age. O God, have mercy upon us. Create in us clean hearts, and renew a right spirit within us. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Comfort and Assurance of the Gospel

Jeremiah 33:8 (ESV)
I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me, and I will forgive all the guilt of their sin and rebellion against me.

Greeting of Peace

Jude 1:2 (ESV)
May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

Congregational Prayer

Ephesians 6:18 (ESV)
[Pray] at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.

Worshiping the Lord with His Tithes & Our Offerings

2 Corinthians 9:8 (ESV)
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

Song of Preparation

His Mercy Is More
(By Matt Boswell and Matt Papa)

Sermon

He Prayed Fervently – Then He Prayed Again

Rev. David Stain
Pastor, Spring Hills Presbyterian Church

James 5:13-18 (ESV)

13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18 Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.

Closing Hymn #44

How Great Thou Art

(By Stuart K. Hine, 1949)

And when I think
that God, his Son not sparing,
sent him to die,
I scarce can take it in,
that on the cross,
my burden gladly bearing,
he bled and died
to take away my sin.
 
Then sings my soul,
my savior God, to Thee:
How great Thou art,
how great Thou art!
[repeat]
 
When Christ shall come
with shout of acclamation
and take me home,
what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
in humble adoration,
and there proclaim,
my God, how great thou art.
 
Then sings my soul,
my savior God, to Thee:
How great Thou art,
how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul,
my savior God, to Thee:
How great Thou art,
how great Thou art!

Benediction
