Welcome to our at home Worship guide
This week we will be having our worship service at church. For those that are not able to attend we will have a live stream available of the service. We hope and pray that you and your family will enjoy the service even though you are not able to be with us. We look forward to the day that we will all be able to worship together as the family of God.
We want to make every effort to ensure that we provide the safest and most effective environment for everyone who joins us for worship. If you fit in the vulnerable or immune-compromised category, there is absolutely no pressure to attend the service. Please do what you feel is best for your own health and well-being!
As we meet together again, let’s pray for an end to this pandemic and the damage it has caused to so many nations around the world. Let us also pray that in the midst of this public health crisis, we, as believers, will draw even closer to God and to one another.
A Prayer of Protection and Deliverance
I. We should pray for God to protect us from the pitfalls of temptation. (The Greek word for temptation can also mean “test” or “trial.”)
II. We should pray for God to deliver us from the schemes of the enemy.
“To be tempted is in itself no sin. It is the yielding to the temptation, and giving it a place in our hearts, which we must fear.” -J.C. Ryle
“If we do not abide in prayer, we will abide in temptation. Let this be one aspect of our daily intercession: "God, preserve my soul, and keep my heart and all its ways so that I will not be entangled." When this is true in our lives, a passing temptation will not overcome us. We will remain free while others lie in bondage.”
- John Owen
End your gathering by praying for the convictions that the Holy Spirit has giving you from the reading and hearing of the Word.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
