GREAT THINGS

Come, let us worship our King.
Come, let us bow at His feet.
He has done great things.
See what our Savior has done.
See how His love overcomes.
He has done great things.
He has done great things.

O Hero of Heaven, You conquered the grave.
You free every captive and break every chain.
O God, You have done great things.
We dance in Your freedom, awake and alive.
O Jesus our Savior, Your name lifted high.
O God, You have done great things.

You’ve been faithful through every storm.
You’ll be faithful forevermore.
You have done great things.
And I know You will do it again,
For Your promise is Yes and Amen.
You will do great things.
God, You do great things.

Hallelujah, God above it all!
Hallelujah, God unshakable!
Hallelujah, You have done great things!
You’ve done great things!

You have done great things!
O God, You do great things!

Scripture – Psalm 40:1-3, Psalm 59:16-17

Leader:     I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
                         and He turned to me and heard my cry.
                   He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
                         out of the mud and the mire.
                   He set my feet on solid ground
                         and steadied me as I walked along.

     ALL:     He has given me a new song to sing,
                        a hymn of praise to our God.
                  Many will see what He has done and be amazed.
                        They will put their trust in the Lord.

Leader:     As for me, I will sing about Your power.
                        Each morning I will sing with joy about Your unfailing love.
                   For You have been my refuge,
                        a place of safety when I am in distress.

     ALL:     O my Strength, to You I sing praises,
                       for You, O God, are my refuge,
                       the God who shows me unfailing love.

CORNERSTONE

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

Christ alone, Cornerstone,
Weak made strong in the Saviour’s love.
Through the storm He is Lord, Lord of all.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
My anchor holds within the veil.

Christ alone, Cornerstone,
Weak made strong in the Saviour’s love.
Through the storm He is Lord, Lord of all.
He is Lord, Lord of all.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found,
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless stand before the throne.

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God, my Father.
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not;
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, Mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

DO IT AGAIN

Walking around these walls, I thought by now they’d fall,
But You have never failed me yet.
Waiting for change to come, Knowing the battle’s won,
For You have never failed me yet.

Your promise still stands,
Great is your faithfulness, faithfulness.
I’m still in Your hands.
This is my confidence:
You’ve never failed me yet.

I know the night won’t last, Your word will come to pass.
My heart will sing your praise again.
Jesus, You’re still enough, Keep me within Your love.
My heart will sing your praise again.

I’ve seen you move, You move the mountains.
And I believe I’ll see you do it again.
You made a way where there was no way,
And I believe I’ll see you do it again.

You’ve never failed me yet.
And I never will forget.
You’ve never failed me yet.
And I never will forget.

Scripture – Matthew 6:25-34

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you—you of little faith?

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Song of Trust

HE WILL HOLD ME FAST

When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold; He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so, He will hold me fast.

Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in His holy sight, He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost; His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast.

For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied; He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast
Till our faith is turned to sight, When He comes at last!

He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so, He will hold me fast.

Praying together

Sunday Morning Prayer —

Continue to pray for justice and racial reconciliation in our country and around the globe. Please pray for the many victims of police misconduct, for our local communities, our nation, and the world, as protests and unrest continue. Pray for protection for the protesters, the police, and the first responders. Pray that the systemic racism and injustice that has plagued our nation since its inception will be addressed fully and sincerely, that there will be true repentance, and that genuine healing and reconciliation will be the fruit produced. Pray that God would use the pain and the anger currently being expressed to draw people to Himself as the ultimate source of truth and justice.

                  “But let justice roll on like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream!”
                                                                                                                               Amos 5:24

Continue to pray with us for all affected by the current COVID-19 crisis — for those who have been infected and are ill, or will be soon; for the medical workers at the front lines of treating the ill and the dying; for those making critical decisions throughout our nation and others as well as in our local communities; for all whose lives are being upended, fearing for their jobs, for the income they depend on, for their education or that of their children, for loved ones who are at risk. Pray that people throughout the world would unite and work together through this crisis, and that many would turn to the Lord and hear the Gospel with new understanding.

Please pray for the upcoming elections, specifically for the Minnesota statewide primary election scheduled for this Tuesday, August 11, as well as for the general election this fall.

Friends with health concerns — Please continue in prayer for: Wendell Amstutz, John Fitz, Darrel Moe, Jerry Nau, Karen Padgett,
          Jordan Padgett, Tim Robeck, Eemou See, and Ray Wiens.

Praying Scripture for our church leaders — We are praying for Steve Hansen, Stan Carlson, Al Derksen, and Gary Peterson, church
          financial secretaries, using I Timothy 4:8 as a guide: “May Steve, Stan, Al, and Gary realize that training in godliness has value
          for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”

Praying for our missionaries — for Anna Pederson (MAF, Papua, Indonesia – Anna’s parents are Garth and Jody Pederson and she
          grew up in the Congo.): Anna left yesterday for Indonesia where she teaches elementary students at Hillcrest. Pray for her
          safety and peace of mind and heart as she travels and transitions to life there. Pray the government will allow her school to
         meet in person. Pray also for her students, their families and other teachers that they will get their visas and tickets so they
         can return to Indonesia.
