Norman Davenport Lenten Service for April 6th, 2022
Welcome and Announcements
Opening Prayer Create a clean heart in me, O God: a humble heart, a meek heart, a peaceful heart, a benevolent heart, a devout heart which does evil to no one, which does not repay evil for evil, but overcomes evil with good, which loves you above all things, thinks always about you, speaks about you, gives you thanks, delights in hymns and spiritual songs, and has its citizenship in heaven. Amen.
Holden Evening Prayer – Sydney Kringstad, Beverly Bjertness, and Nicole Rohrbeck
Readers: Cade Westby, Brady Baumgarten, Henry Kuznia
1st Reading - Joel 2: 12-14 “Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing—grain offerings and drink offerings for the Lord your God.”
Psalm – Psalm 130:5-6 “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word, I put my hope. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning.”
2nd Reading - Isaiah 30:18 “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore, he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!”
Video Sermon by Rob Bell – Noise
Closing Prayer Lord, we give you thanks for this wonderful evening of prayer and worship. We thank you for guiding each person here tonight and pray that they have felt your presence with them during this time and will continue to on the journey ahead. Lord, help us to hear the still small voice of God in the silence. Help us to find a solitary place, search our hearts, and be silent in your presence. Let our schedules, time, and lives reflect that of a person wanting to hear God’s voice. In your Holy name, we pray, Amen.
Closing Song Spirit of Gentleness (#396)
Go in peace and serve the Lord!
Thanks be to God!
