CALL TO WORSHIP – Based on Psalm 37

Joo Ahn Kim

Let us trust in God and do good,
So we can live in our communities in peace.
Let us delight in our God,
And gratefully receive the desires of our hearts.
Let us commit our ways to God,
Because when we trust, God acts.
Let us be still before God,
And wait patiently.
Let us not envy those who do evil.
Let us not act out of anger.
Let us set aside revenge.
Let us not fret.
God illuminates the path of justice,
So that we might follow in faith.
God is our refuge in the time of trouble;
Our helper, our rescuer, our savior.

OPENING SONG

“Lead Me, Guide Me” By Doris Akers

SCRIPTURE READING – Psalm 37:1-13

Dee Jackson

1 Do not fret because of the wicked;
do not be envious of wrongdoers,
2 for they will soon fade like the grass,
and wither like the green herb.

3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
so you will live in the land, and enjoy security.
4 Take delight in the Lord,
and God will give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in God, and God will act.
6 God will make your vindication shine like the light,
and the justice of your cause like the noonday.

7 Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for God;
do not fret over those who prosper in their way,
over those who carry out evil devices.

8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath.
Do not fret—it leads only to evil.
9 For the wicked shall be cut off,
but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.

10 Yet a little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look diligently for their place, they will not be there.
11 But the meek shall inherit the land,
and delight in abundant prosperity.

12 The wicked plot against the righteous,
and gnash their teeth at them;
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for God sees that their day is coming.

PRAYER OF THE DAY

Jikwon Yu

Our gracious and merciful God,
We have come before your throne,
To employ your grace and mercy in this perplexing times;
We believe in your saving grace and compassion at work in lives,
Loving God, let not your presence depart from us and our nation;
Help us to always be vigilant as your people,
this will remind us of who we are in this world and your kingdom;
If any of us is afflicted, let mighty power on them;
deliver us from any form of oppression which entangles us as your people.
In Jesus the blessed name we pray
Amen!
