Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

Psalm 62:5-8 (NKJV)

My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah

Prayer

O Lord, God of salvation, we praise and lift You on high. You are our strength and joy. We worship You. How awesome are You, O Lord. Your power and glory are displayed all over the earth. God Most High, be known and be magnified in all the nations through Jesus, Amen.

Scripture Reading

R-15 THE HOLY SPIRIT 聖靈

John 14:16-18, 26; 16:7-14 (NKJV)


And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.


But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.


Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.


“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.

Song of Response

Lyrics - God Hath Not Promised

Worship through Prayer

  1. Lord, thank You for the assurance from Your Word that You are sovereign and active in fulfilling Your promises even in Your silence and hiddenness. Help me wait patiently on You.

  2. When I feel forsaken because of Your silence, help me trust in Your unfailing love. Help me remember Your constant mercy in my life and cling on to Your promises.

  3. Lord, help me examine my heart and check if there be any wicked ways in me. Help me keep a godly life that is holy and pleasing to You. Help me resist evil and flee from temptations. Let no sin remain unconfessed in my life.

  4. Quiet my heart and mind as I listen in anticipation for You to speak to me. Let me not grow weary in waiting for You. Remind me that even Your silence is good. Help me keep a daily quiet time to be in Your presence.
