St Jozef Church Moorsel

Welcome

Opening Prayer

O gracious and holy Father,

give us wisdom to perceive you,

diligence to seek you,

patience to wait for you,

eyes to behold you,

a heart to meditate upon you,

and a life to proclaim you,

through the power of the spirit of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Song

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea

Creation's revealing Your majesty

From the colours of Fall to the fragrance of Spring

Ev'ry creature unique in the song that it sings

All exclaiming

 

Indescribable uncontainable

You placed the stars in the sky

And You know them by name

You are amazing God

All powerful untamable

Awestruck we fall to our knees

As we humbly proclaim

You are amazing God

 

Who has told ev'ry lightning bolt where it should go

Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow

Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light

Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night

None can fathom

 

Indescribable uncontainable You placed the stars in the sky

And You know them by name

You are amazing God

Incomparable unchangeable

You see the depths of my heart

And You love me the same

You are amazing God

You are amazing God

Song

Every praise is to our God

Every word of worship with one accord

Every praise every praise is to our God

Sing hallelujah to our God

Glory hallelujah is due our God

Every praise every praise is to our God

 

God my Saviour

God my Healer

God my Deliverer

Yes He is yes He is (Yes He is yes He is)

 

Every praise every praise is to our God

Prayer for Fathers

Heavenly Father,

you entrusted your Son Jesus,

the child of Mary,

to the care of Joseph,

an earthly father.

 

Bless all fathers as they care for their families.

Give them strength and wisdom,

tenderness and patience.

 

Support them in the work they have to do,

protecting those who look to them,

as we look to you for love and salvation,

through Jesus Christ, our rock and defender.

Amen.

Confession

Lord God, our maker and our redeemer,

this is your world and we are your people:

come among us and save us.

We have wilfully misused your gifts of creation;

Lord, be merciful: forgive us our sin.

We have seen the ill-treatment of others

and have not gone to their aid;

Lord, be merciful: forgive us our sin.

 

We have condoned evil and dishonesty

and failed to strive for justice;

Lord, be merciful: forgive us our sin.

 

We have heard the good news of Christ,

but have failed to share it with others;

Lord, be merciful: forgive us our sin.

We have not loved you with all our heart,

nor our neighbours as ourselves;

Lord, be merciful: forgive us our sin.

 

May the God of love and power

forgive us and free us from our sins,

heal and strengthen us by his Spirit,

and raise us to new life in Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

Glorify the Lord

Glorify the Lord with me;

exalt his name, for great is he!

I’ll praise the Lord for ever and ever.
 

I’ll praise the Lord for ever and ever,

my soul shall boast of his wonderful name:

I sought the Lord, he answered my calling,

delivered me from my innermost fears:

O taste and see how gracious the Lord is –

secure are they who take refuge in him:

The Lord redeems the faithful who serve him,

and those who trust him he never condemns:

Glorify the Lord with me;

exalt his name, for great is he!

I’ll praise the Lord for ever and ever.

Song

When the music fades

all is stripped away

And I simply come

Longing just to bring

something that's of worth

That will bless Your heart

 

I'll bring You more than a song

For a song in itself

is not what You have required

You search much deeper within

Through the way things appear

You're looking into my heart

 

I'm coming back to the heart of worship

And it's all about You all about You Jesus

I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it

When it's all about You all about You Jesus

 

King of endless worth

no one could express

How much You deserve

Though I'm weak and poor

all I have is Yours

Ev'ry single breath

Matt Redman  © 1997 Thankyou Music

 

Song

Over the mountains and the sea

Your river runs with love for me

And I will open up my heart and

let the Healer set me free

I'm happy to be in the truth

And I will daily lift my hands

For I will always sing of when

Your love came down

 

I could sing of Your love forever

I could sing of Your love forever

I could sing of Your love forever

I could sing of Your love forever

Oh I feel like dancing,

it's foolishness I know

But when the world has seen the light

They will dance with joy

like we're dancing now

We believe in God the Father,
from whom every family
in heaven and on earth is named.

We believe in one God;

Amen.
 

Prayers
 

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours

now and for ever.

Song

Before the throne of God above

I have a strong a perfect plea

A great High Priest whose name is Love

Who ever lives and pleads for me

 

My name is written on His hands

My name is hidden on His heart

I know that while in heaven He stands

No power can force me to depart

 

When Satan tempts me to despair

And tells me of the guilt within

Upward I look and see Him there

Who made an end of all my sin
 

Because the sinless Saviour died

My sinful soul is counted free

For God the Just is satisfied

To look on Him and pardon me

 

Behold Him there the risen Lamb

My perfect sinless Righteousness

The great unchangeable I AM

The King of glory and of grace

 

One with my Lord I cannot die

My soul is purchased by His blood

My life is safe with Christ on high

With Christ my Saviour and my God.

Loving God, we thank you for hearing our prayers,

feeding us with your word,

and encouraging us in our meeting together.

Take us and use us to love and serve you,

and all people,

in the power of your Spirit

and in the name of your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.


Sending out
