*Opening Songs of Praise

*Opening Prayer and God’s Greeting

  Responsive Reading:  Taken from 1 John 5 (Also on the Screen)

 L:  I write these things to you who believe in the Name of the Son of

God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

 P:  This is the confidence we have in approaching God:  that

 If we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

 L:  If we know that He hears us – whatever we ask – we know that

we have what we asked of Him.

 P:  We know that we are children of God, and that the whole

world is under the control of the evil one.

 L:  We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us

understanding, so that we may know Him who is true.

 P:  And we are in Him who is true – God’s Son Jesus Christ. 

He is the true God and eternal life.

and trampled by men.


 L:  You are the Light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden.

that they may see our good deeds and give praise our

Father in heaven.
