Posted: November 20, 2016 by Joshua Knott

Daily Worship - November 21-26, 2016
"Let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer
to God acceptable worship with reverence and awe." Hebrews 12:28  


 Psalm 146:1-54
1 Praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord, O my soul!
2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
    I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, 
    in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
    on that very day his plans perish.

5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
    whose hope is in the Lord his God.

“Now Thank We All Our God” (v. 3)
All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given; 
  the Son, and him who reigns with them in highest heaven; 
  the one eternal God, whom earth and heaven adore; 
  for thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

Time of Prayer

 
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.


“Gloria Patri” 
Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen, amen.
