THE LORD’S PRAYER
ANTHEM “In Times Like These with His Eye is on The Sparrow”- JT Hauser with Chancel Choir*
SCRIPTURE AND SERMON Rev. Steve
The God Centered Life: God Has a Plan-Psalm 118:19-23
Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it. I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.
1) Take Every Opportunity to Talk to God About Your Situation
Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free.
Save us, we pray, O Lord! O Lord, we pray, give us success!
2) Take Every Opportunity to Say ‘Thank You’
You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will extol you. Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good for his steadfast love endures forever!
3) Take Every Opportunity to Do Good
Open for me the gates where the righteous enter, I will go in and thank the Lord. Those gates lead to the presence of the Lord, and the godly enter there.
Psalm 118:19-20 NLT
