Missa Luba 1965: Kyrie (B1)

Missa Luba 1965: Sanctus (B4)

17 Now it happened on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 18 Then behold, men brought on a bed a man who was paralyzed, whom they sought to bring in and lay before Him. 19 And when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the housetop and let him down with his bed through the tiling into the midst before Jesus. Luke 5:17-19 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help us overcome any barriers to bringing people to you.

20 When He saw their faith, He said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven you." 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?" Luke 5:20-21 (NKJV)
     Jesus, we have become corrupt judges of you.

22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answered and said to them, "Why are you reasoning in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Rise up and walk'? 24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins"--He said to the man who was paralyzed, "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house." 25 Immediately he rose up before them, took up what he had been lying on, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. Luke 5:22-25 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us witness works of faith and healing.

26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today!" Luke 5:26 (NKJV)
     Father, please give us eyes to see what Jesus is doing among us. Help us know his purposes for us.

1 The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; 2 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, The excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the LORD, The excellency of our God. Isaiah 35:1-2 (NKJV)
     Father, make those parishes which have become deserts bloom again.

3 Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees. 4 Say to those who are fearful-hearted, "Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you." Isaiah 35:3-4 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please strengthen our weak hands with our Holy Spirit.

1 O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. 2 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Psalm 63:1-2 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, flood those churhes which have become dry and thirsty with your Holy Spirit.

A Word Received: Let my praises be in your mouth. Give honor where it is due.

"Stand Up Stand Up For Jesus" by 250 Voice Mass Choir for Classic Hymns album " Our God Reigns"

1 So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, 2 and saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets. 3 Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. 4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, "Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." Luke 5:1-4 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me by your Holy Spirit to launch out into the deep at your word.

8 And he went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading concerning the things of the kingdom of God. Acts 19:8 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help us go into the churches and speak boldly of the kingdom of God.

1 Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation. 2 He only is my rock and my salvation; *He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved. Psalm 62:1-2 (NKJV)
     God, I wait on you. You are my defense and in you I can hold steady in the storm.

Come As You Are

Hymn - All people that on earth do dwell

35 And the people stood looking on. But even the rulers with them sneered, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ, the chosen of God." 36 The soldiers also mocked Him, coming and offering Him sour wine, 37 and saying, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself." Luke 23:35-37 (NKJV)
     Jesus, thank you for choosing to save us rather than yourself.

38 And an inscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. Luke 23:38 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help the unbelievers among us acknowledge that Jesus is King.

39 Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, "If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us." 40 But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong." 42 Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." 43 And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." Luke 23:39-43 (NKJV)
     Lord Jesus, remember me at the hour of my death and help me remember you.

1 "Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!" says the LORD. 2 Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: "You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings," says the LORD. 3 "But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. Jeremiah 23:1-3 (NKJV)
     Father, bring to repentance the shepherds of the flock who have abandoned the gospel and your Scriptures.

4 I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking," says the LORD. Jeremiah 23:4 (NKJV)
     LORD, raise up a faithful shepherd over the Episcopal Diocese of Albany.

4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. 5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. 6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. 7 The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalm 46:4-7 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us sing God's praises with understanding.

A Word Received: I have come among you as a suffering servant. Follow my lead as you serve one another.

To God Be The Glory ( Royal Albert Hall, London)

Agnus Dei - Michael W. Smith & Amy Grant

Water is Wide
     Jesus, help me cross over the Jordan to the promised land.

1 Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry. 3 And the devil said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread." 4 But Jesus answered him, saying, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.' " Luke 4:1-4 (NKJV)
     Please, Lord, continue to feed me with your word.

1 After these things Paul departed from Athens and went to Corinth. 2 And he found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla (because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome); and he came to them. 3 So, because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them and worked; for by occupation they were tentmakers. 4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks. Acts 18:1-4 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us use our secular employment to support us in ministry.

1 Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. Psalm 51:1-2 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please wash and cleanse me of sin.

16 Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, And righteousness remain in the fruitful field. 17 The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. 18 My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, In secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places, 19 Though hail comes down on the forest, And the city is brought low in humiliation. Isaiah 32:16-19 (NKJV)
     Father, thank you that we can look to you for help and peace no matter what storms may come.

A Word Received: I have held you in my arms and have never dropped you. Trust me for the rest of the journey.

1 LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

2 He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart;
     Jesus, help walk as you walk: uprightly and with righteousness.

3 He who does not backbite with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;

4 In whose eyes a vile person is despised, But he honors those who fear the LORD; He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
     Father, please help me honor you and from doing wrong. Please help me keep my word, whatever the cost.

5 He who does not put out his money at usury, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.

     Jesus, you are my hope and stay; thank you for coming into my life.

7 Then he said to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. Luke 3:7-8 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, please help me bear fruits worthy of repentance.

5 But the Jews who were not persuaded, becoming envious, took some of the evil men from the marketplace, and gathering a mob, set all the city in an uproar and attacked the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people. 6 But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the city, crying out, "These who have turned the world upside down have come here too. Acts 17:5-6 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help me be worthy of being accused of turning the world upside down for you.

1 "Woe to the rebellious children," says the LORD, "Who take counsel, but not of Me, And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, That they may add sin to sin; Isaiah 30:1 (NKJV)
     Father, please help us acknowledge that we are rebellious children.

2 Who walk to go down to Egypt, And have not asked My advice, To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, And to trust in the shadow of Egypt! Isaiah 30:2 (NKJV)
     Father, help us repent of trying to find our strength anywhere but in you.

6 So he answered and said to me: "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the LORD of hosts. Zechariah 4:6 (NKJV)
     Jesus, baptize us afresh with your Holy Spirit.

1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 (NKJV)
     God, you are my refuge and strength.

8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:8-11 (NKJV)
     Father, help all in the church hear these glad tidings.

5 In that day the LORD of hosts will be For a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty To the remnant of His people, 6 For a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, And for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. Isaiah 28:5-6 (NKJV)
     LORD, please be our crown of glory.

7 "And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in You. 8 Deliver me from all my transgressions; Do not make me the reproach of the foolish. Psalm 39:7-8 (NKJV)
