OPENING HYMN: 436 “Go To Dark Gethsemane”

THE INVOCATION
P.     In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

C. Amen.

APPROACHING THE WORD
P. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

C. The word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God.

P. Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

C. The Lord sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction.

P. “The word that goes forth from my mouth shall not return to me empty,” says the Lord.

C. “It shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”

OPENING PRAYER
P. Heavenly Father, when the time was right, you sent your Son to redeem us. As Scripture foretold, Jesus was betrayed and abandoned by his friends. Although
    he was innocent, he was condemned to death and carried our sins in his  body to the cross. We thank you that all was accomplished for us by Jesus on the cross. We offer to you our praise and thanksgiving in the name of Jesus our Lord.

C. Amen.

THE PSALM FOR THE DAY: Psalm 22:1-5
P. My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning?

C. O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent.

P. Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel.

C. In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them.

P. They cried to you and were saved;

C. in you they trusted and were not disappointed.

THE OFFERING

HYMN: 427 “In The Cross Of Christ I Glory” (1,4)


A RESPONSIVE READING
P. I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from?

C. My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

P. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber;

C. indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

P. The LORD watches over you—the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

C. the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

P. The LORD will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;
C. the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

CLOSING PRAYER
Lord Jesus, when we feel overwhelmed by our sin and guilt help us to remember that you accomplished everything for us on the cross. It was there that you conquered sin, death and the devil on our behalf. Help us, by faith, to accept everything that you have done for us. In your precious name we pray.  Amen.


THE BENEDICTION
P. The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord lead you as you take up your cross to follow him. The Lord grant you salvation and guide your feet in the way of peace.

C. Amen.

CLOSING HYMN:  451 “Stricken, Smitten, And Afflicted”
