Leave a comment

Songs of preparation: That I Might Keep Your Statutes, LORD (BOPFW 119E) and Sovereign Grace O’er Sin Abounding.
Call to worship:
Praise: Holy, Holy, Holy.
Prayer of adoration and confession:
Scripture assurance, confession of faith, doxology: When Peace, Like A River; The Apostles’ Creed; Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow.
Continuous reading: Daniel 9: 20 – 27 – Daniel, in 539–538 B.C., now about 80 years old, recalls Jeremiah’s prophesy that the years of captivity would be 70 (Jeremiah 25:11,12; 29:10). Consequently he prays for the restoration of Jerusalem, but not before he prays an extended prayer of confession of sin.
Bible Memorisation: Ephesians 6: 11
Praise: My Hope Rests Firm On Jesus Christ.
Scripture reading: Ephesians 6: 13 – 14.
Sermon: Armed For Battle – In order to prevail until the end of our struggle against spiritual darkness, Paul reminds Christians to find their security in who God is, what God has done for us, and to make every effort to actively depend on God’s salvation rather than our own devices.
Pastoral prayer.
Tithes and offerings.
Departing praise: Our Father Everlasting (The Creed).
