Sunday 27 May 2018

 

Psalm 29:1-11

1   Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings, 
          ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 
2   Ascribe to the LORD the glory of his name; 
          worship the LORD in holy splendor.

3   The voice of the LORD is over the waters; 
          the God of glory thunders, 
          the LORD, over mighty waters. 
4   The voice of the LORD is powerful; 
          the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.

5   The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; 
          the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon. 
6   He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, 
          and Sirion like a young wild ox.

7   The voice of the LORD flashes forth flames of fire. 
8   The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; 
          the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9   The voice of the LORD causes the oaks to whirl, 
          and strips the forest bare; 
          and in his temple all say, “Glory!”

10  The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; 
          the LORD sits enthroned as king for ever. 
11  May the LORD give strength to his people! 
          May the LORD bless his people with peace!



 
 TODAY

               St Andrew’s Concert 2-4pm

 

MISSION BOXES:

Now is the time for Mission Boxes to be collected.
Please hand them to Jane Heywood or leave them in the office for her.


So I say to you:
Ask and you will receive;
Seek, and you will find;
Knock and the door Will be opened for you.                    Luke 11: 9

 

PRAYER SPOT: 

Will the doorkeepers rise up and take their positions
At the right door. Will the repentant, beaten
Worshippers turn their focus away from the bleating 
complaints of men to offer the sweet incense of praise 
to enthrone the Great King. By Tommy Tenney
 
The priority in our lives is to offer praise to God.
