Prelude..…………………………………………………Gregory Dixon Please post your prayer requests and praises in the YouTube chat box, or email concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1 Father, we have heard you calling to your church in every age; for a sign of true devotion for a sacrifice of praise. In this place where you have brought us, may we always seek to be one in love and one in worship – children of eternity.
2 Jesus Christ, our faith’s perfecter, priest and advocate above. We would reach our broken nation with the truth of your great love. So transform our feeble witness, may we always live to be one in love and one in worship – children of eternity.
3 Holy Spirit, fire of heaven, fall upon us here today. Bring release, bring tears, bring passion, then transform your church, we pray. As you pour your grace upon us, may we always thirst to be one in love and one in worship – children of eternity.
4 Praise we bring to God the Father, praise we bring to God the Son, praise to God the Holy Spirit, praise to you, the three in one. Trinity of love inspire us, may we always strive to be one in love and one in worship – children of eternity.
Prayers of the People: Please comment with your prayer concerns and especially offer up those things that cause your soul to be in a place of deep lament this day. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayers.
1 We are climbing Jacob’s ladder; we are climbing Jacob’s ladder, we are climbing Jacob’s ladder; soldiers of the cross.
2 Every round goes higher, higher; every round goes higher, higher, every round goes higher, higher; soldiers of the cross.
3 Sinner, do you love my Jesus? Sinner, do you love my Jesus? Sinner, do you love my Jesus? Soldiers of the cross.
4 If you love him, why not serve him? If you love him, why not serve him? If you love him, why not serve him? Soldiers of the cross.
5 We are climbing higher, higher; we are climbing higher, higher, we are climbing higher, higher; soldiers of the cross.
