O For A Thousand Tongues - T. Jarman (Choir : Surabaya Oratorio Society)

11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, that no one fall by the same sort of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11 (RSV)
     Let us therefore strive to enter the rest of Christ Jesus our Lord.

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)
     Lord GOD, let your word pierce our hearts and make us new.

13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:13 (NKJV)
     Father, you see all things - I trust you to bring me through to victory in you Son.

14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. Hebrews 4:14 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, no matter what folly the national church engages in, help us hold fast to the confession of a true faith.

15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help us through every temptation. Help us discern the true from the false.

16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16 (NKJV)
     Lord GOD, help me find your grace to help in time of need.

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NKJV)
     Father, thank you for your love for us.

What Wondrous Love Is This - Fernando Ortega

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17 (NKJV)
     Jesus, thank you for setting us free from condemnation.

18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:18 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, thank you for your gift of faith and belief in Jesus.

19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:19 (NKJV)
     Jesus, thank you for the light you shine on my path.

20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. John 3:20 (NKJV)
     Lord, don't let me compromise with evil and those who practice evil.

21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God." John 3:21 (NKJV)
     Father, lead me into the light of the gospel day by day. Thank you for giving me a listening heart.

You Keep On Getting Better (feat. Majesty Rose) - Maverick City Music | TRIBL Music

16 And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying: "We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One who is and who was and who is to come, Because You have taken Your great power and reigned. Revelation 11:16-17 (NKJV)
     Lord God, help me join in this chorus of thanksgiving and praise.

15 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. Hebrews 13:15 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me continue in this.

8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the Lord. 9 For what thanks can we render to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sake before our God, 1 Thessalonians 3:8-9 (NKJV)
     Father, help us give thanks for one another.

15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15 (NKJV)
     Jesus, when I was lost you found me and gave me of yourself. Thank you.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. Luke 17:15-16 (NKJV)
     Jesus, if I don't give you thanks, the very stones will cry out in thanksgiving.

11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever. Psalm 30:11-12 (NKJV)
     O LORD my God, thank you for turning my mourning into praise and thanksgiving.

11 And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the LORD: "For He is good, For His mercy endures forever toward Israel." Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid. Ezra 3:11 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, let there be a shout of praise in our congregations.

8 Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! 1 Chronicles 16:8 (NKJV)
     LORD, bring forth men, women and children who will give thanks and call upon your name.

50 Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name. 2 Samuel 22:50 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, send us forth to give you praise among those who do not kknow you.

     DEACON ALAN and DEACON MARYCAROL HART -- (St. Ann's of Amsterdam's Prayer Table report for Monday, Feb. 22) -- In what we hope will be our last Indoor Prayer Table for a long time, we had three women come to the Parish Hall this morning. Jody Demers, our energetic Administrative Assistant, did a great job assembling some ensembles of clothing for women and children and these items were greatly appreciated by the three women who came by today. All three gratefully accepted the free non-perishable food we offer and the free used, clean clothing Jody put together for them. Please join me in praying for each person who came. REBECCA received prayer for serious health concerns she is battling. The Lord knows the details. CAROL sought prayer for her daughter who lives in Missouri, which is experiencing some unusually cold weather. Her water pipes froze this morning and they are temporarily without water. She asked for prayer that warm temperatures would come and thaw the pipes. NANCY received prayer for depression over the pandemic and what she termed an "endless" winter.
     Thank you all for your intercessory prayers. God bless you.

'Guide Me, Oh Thou Great Jehovah'

13 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables. 16 And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" John 2:13-16 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please come and cleanse your church.

7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. 8 Because finding fault with them, He says: "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah-- 9 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the LORD. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 11 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. Hebrews 8:7-11 (NKJV)
     Lord, we like sheep have gone astray. Jesus, bring us all into your fold.

4 Do not think in your heart, after the LORD your God has cast them out before you, saying, 'Because of my righteousness the LORD has brought me in to possess this land'; but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is driving them out from before you. Deuteronomy 9:4 (NKJV)
     Holy Father, help us by your Spirit to recongize our own wickedness.

6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions. Psalm 45:6-7 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help those who govern your church enter into your righteousness.

Libera - Be Still My Soul

5 His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it." John 2:5 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me do whatever Jesus asks of me.

6 Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. 7 Jesus said to them, "Fill the waterpots with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And He said to them, "Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast." And they took it. John 2:6-8 (NKJV)
     Jesus, your miracles so often come out of doing the simple tasks you give us to do.

9 When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. 10 And he said to him, "Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!" John 2:9-10 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I live in the hope that the best is yet to come.

14 when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; 15 who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock; 16 who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do you good in the end-- 17 then you say in your heart, 'My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.' 18 And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:14-18 (NKJV)
     Father, please help me never forget all that you have done to bring me into your freedom.

1 Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. 2 The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. 3 The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed. Psalm 41:1-3 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me remember and help the poor so that I may receive your blessing.

8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever. 9 I will praise You forever, Because You have done it; And in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good. Psalm 52:8-9 (NKJV)
     LORD, thank you for keeping me green and fresh and fruitful.

9 And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth." Revelation 5:9-10 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us join in singing this song.

Revelation 11:16-18 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help our elders join inn saying this.

7 For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, 8 but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled,
     Holy Spirit, raise up a bishop who loves what is good in your sight.

9 holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.
