Opening Prayer

Psalm  30:6-10(Common English Bible)

When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.”  Lord, when you favored me, you made my royal mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. To you, Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: “What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help. ”  Amen.  

Scripture Reading: 

Proverbs 18

Hymn

“Jesus Paid It All” Worship & Song 3100 (Verse 3)

For nothing good have I Where-by Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.

Closing Prayer

Prayer by Rev. Dale Fredrickson

You have power, swinging with you, a defiant wind

Love in your wings

Where there is evil, injustice, and opposition

Be the voice, the velocity That stirs the earth

The lament That heals people

The poem That dreams again

The hurricane Of resistance

For those who cannot breathe. Amen
