Exodus 20:14

Call to Worship

Psalm 75:1–7

[1] In Judah God is known;
his name is great in Israel.
[2] His abode has been established in Salem,
his dwelling place in Zion.
[3] There he broke the flashing arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.

[4] Glorious are you, more majestic
than the mountains full of prey.
[5] The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;
they sank into sleep;
all the men of war
were unable to use their hands.
[6] At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
both rider and horse lay stunned.

[7] But you, you are to be feared!
Who can stand before you
when once your anger is roused?
[8] From the heavens you uttered judgment;
the earth feared and was still,
[9] when God arose to establish judgment,
to save all the humble of the earth. (ESV)

Prayer of Confession

Almighty God, You have placed us into Your world and prepared our steps. You have given us life and freed us from sin so that we might worship You. But we have turned aside. We have loved Your gifts more than we have loved You. We have sought freedom in our earthly citizenship. We have pursued joy through the American Dream. We repent and confess that our allegiance is due to You and You alone. Teach us to live as citizens of Your kingdom and as ambassadors of the King to our friends and neighbors who are living in darkness. Help us to yearn for heaven as pilgrims in a foreign land. May Your kingdom come, and Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. We pray in Jesus’ name and for His glory. Amen.
