Welcome to our at home Worship guide
Before you do, we’d love to connect with you as you gather to worship in your home! Take a picture of yourself or your family and post it online. You can tag Stallings Memorial Baptist Church on Facebook.
(If you have small children, it may be difficult to work through this guide with them present, but it is our hope that families will use this to worship the Lord and spend time in His Word together.)
Scripture Reading and Prayer
Choose someone to read Psalm 145:1-5
1 I will extol You, my God, O King,
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
2 Every day I will bless You,
And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
3 Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised,
And His greatness is unsearchable.
4 One generation shall praise Your works to another,
And shall declare Your mighty acts.
5 On the glorious splendor of Your majesty
And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.
For a clear mind and for ears to hear as God speaks through His Word today.
For our medical professionals, caregivers, and researchers responsible for continuing to fighting the Covid-19.
For the leaders responsible for making decisions about the Covid-19.
For God to bring salvation through the faithfulness and obedience of His church to continue to proclaim the gospel.

I. In our prayer of dependence, we acknowledge that God supplies our basic necessities.
II. In our prayer of dependence, we acknowledge that God meets our needs daily.
III. In our prayer of dependence, we acknowledge our responsibility to share with the less fortunate.
Praying for bread is a way of reminding us that God is the provider of all things.
“God gives us the ingredients for our daily bread, but he expects us to do the baking!” – Chip Ingram
“The prayer is for our needs, not our greeds. It is for one day at a time, reflecting the precarious lifestyle of many first-century workers who were paid one day at a time and for whom a few days’ illness could spell tragedy.”
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.
