CALL TO WORSHIP & PRAYER
You give life, you are love, you bring light to the darkness. You give hope, you restore every heart that is broken. Great are you, Lord. CHORUS-It’s your breath in our lungs, so we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise. It’s your breath in our lungs so we pour out our praise to you only.
All the earth will shout your praise. Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing, great are you, Lord.
1-Did you feel the mountains tremble? Did you hear the oceans roar? When the people rose to sing of Jesus Christ, the risen One?
2-Did you feel the people tremble? Did you hear the singers roar? When the lost began to sing of Jesus Christ, the saving One?
And we can see that, God, you’re moving, a mighty river through the nations; and young and old will turn to Jesus. Fling wide, you heavenly gates; prepare the way of the risen Lord.
CHORUS-Open up the doors. Let the music play. Let the streets resound with singing: songs that bring Your hope. Songs that bring Your joy, dancers who dance upon injustice.
3-Do you feel the darkness tremble? When all the saints join in one song, and all the streams flow as one river to wash away our brokenness?
And here we see that, God, you’re moving; a time of jubilee is coming, when young and old return to Jesus. Fling wide, you heavenly gates; prepare the way of the risen Lord.
FROM THE WORD Romans 8:22-27
1-He is the Lord and he reigns on high. He is the Lord. Spoke into the darkness, created the light. He is the Lord. Who is like unto Him, never ending in days? He is the Lord. And he comes in pow’r when we call on His name. He is the Lord. Show your power, O Lord our God. Show your power, O Lord our God, our God.
2-You are the one worthy of praise. You are the Lord. Almighty, Victorious, Beginning and End. You are the Lord. In your goodness and mercy you gave us your Son. You are the Lord. And into your presence, we come by your grace. You are the Lord. Send your power, O Lord our God. Send your power, O Lord our God, our God.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
1-All who are thirsty, all who are weak, come to the fountain dip your heart in the stream of life. Let the pain and the sorrow be washed away, in the waves of His mercy as deep cries out to deep. Come, Lord Jesus, come! Come, Lord Jesus, come! Holy Spirit, come! Holy Spirit, come!
2-All who are weary, all who feel dry, drink in His presence, come sit at the Savior’s side. Feel His love hold you as you look to Him, receive His blessing of grace and forgiveness from sin. Alleluia. Alleluia. Come, Lord Jesus, come! Come, Lord Jesus, come!
