  • GATHERING IN THE LIGHT OF GOD -Adapted from Psalm 138              

 

      Today we give thanks to the Lord with our whole heart!

      We bow down towards the Lord and give thanks to God’s name because of God’s steadfast love and faithfulness.

     We call, God answers and increases the strength of our souls.

     Let us sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.

     For though the Lord is high, the Lord regards the lowly; but the arrogant are far

      away from God.

      The Lord fulfills plans and purposes through us. The steadfast love of the Lord endures forever! God does not forsake the works of creation!
