Tuesday Worship

Please enter in silence and meditation

Welcome

The kingdom of God:

The kingdom of God is justice and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Come, Lord, and open in us the gates of your kingdom.

Still:

Find rest my soul in Christ alone.
Know his power in quietness and trust.

Gospel reading: Philippians 2: 5-11
Jesus, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death.

Wait for the Lord:

Wait for the Lord, whose day is near. Wait for the Lord. Keep watch, take heart.

Silent Prayer

Stay with me:

Stay with me, remain here with me. Watch and pray. Watch and pray.

Intercessory Prayer

"Holy Spirit come to us"
Eternal God, you have freed us by giving us your only Son. You open for us the way of freedom.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

God, you want us to become new creatures in Christ. Keep us in the communion of your Son. Keep us alert as we wait for the day of his coming.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

Christ, your spirit of life dwells within every human being. May the Spirit enable us to tear down walls of mistrust and of fear, Lord, we pray.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

Give us your peace, so that we can communicate it to one another in mutual love, and serve the human family.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

Christ, you have taken our weaknesses upon yourself and taken charge of our illnesses. Support those who are going through trials, Lord, we pray.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

For those who work with the oppressed, with foreigners and with the lonely, Lord, we pray.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

We entrust to you our families and friends, all who have asked for our prayers and who pray for us, whom we name before you now, (please speak out the names at this time) Lord, we pray…
"Holy Spirit come to us"

God is Forgiveness:

God is forgiveness. Dare to forgive and God will be with you.
God is forgiveness. Love and do not fear.

Closing Prayer:

Jesus our peace, if our lips keep silence, our heart listens to you and also speaks to you. And you say to each one of us: surrender yourself in all simplicity to the life of the Holy Spirit; for this, the little bit of faith you have is enough. (A prayer from Taizé)

Within our darkest night:

Within our darkest night, you kindle the fire never dies away, never dies away.

You are invited to depart in silence or remain to pray.

Welcome

Bless the Lord, My Soul:

Bless the Lord, my soul, and bless God's holy name.
Bless the Lord, my soul, who leads me into life.

Still:

Find rest my soul in Christ alone.
Know his power in quietness and trust.

Gospel reading: Luke 6:37–38
Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.

Wait for the Lord:

Wait for the Lord, whose day is near. Wait for the Lord. Keep watch, take heart.

Silent Prayer

Stay with me:

Stay with me, remain here with me. Watch and pray. Watch and pray.

You are able more than able:

You are able more than able to accomplish what concerns me today.
You are able more than able to handle anything that comes my way.
You are able more than able to do much more than I could ever dream.
You are able more than able to make me what you want me to be.

Closing Prayer:
Jesus our peace, if our lips keep silence, our heart listens to you and also speaks to you. And you say to each one of us: surrender yourself in all simplicity to the life of the Holy Spirit; for this, the little bit of faith you have is enough. (A prayer from Taizé)

Jesus, remember me:

Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.

You are invited to depart in silence or remain to pray.

Living Water

ppt
livingwatersfortheworld.org
Props: a clean long bottle.

(1) Have a look at these kids.
What do you think they are doing?

They are going to a nearby river to get some waters.
They want to have some clean water to drink.
But the water is not clean.

(3) Do you have this facet at home?
But they don’t have it.

(2) So, sometimes they use this yellow container to get water.
But the water is not clean.
But they have to drink some waters.
So they drink it everyday.
And because of that, they get sick.
Some of them die.
Hum, only if they have some clean water, they will live healthier.
What should we do?

Now let me introduce an organization.
It is called “living waters for the world.”
What do they do?
(3) This organization provides clear water.
They train people to go and put this machine in various village/countries.

(4) Then they teach local people how to use this machine.
Then these people can have clean water.
(5) See they have clean water.

So, we are going to send money to this organization so that they can provide more clean water.
So, let’s search for some coins at home.
Now go home and find some coins under your bed, under your sofa, under your car seat.
Then tomorrow bring some coins and put it here.
We are going to collect all those coins.
And we will send all the money to the organization that provides clean water.
Sounds good?

Now what does this bottle look like?
It is a temperature scale.
It shows temperature.
Now it is very cold. Huhuh.
We are going to bring some coin tomorrow and make our weather warmer.
Right?

The bible said Jesus is our living water. (John 7:37-38)
It says, those who know Jesus will be not thirsty again,
It says, those who know Jesus will have the eternal water.

Jesus is the eternal water for our mind.
People need to have this Jesus, the eternal water in their mind.
They also need physical water.
Then they will live healthier.

So, let's pray that everybody may know Jesus with their mind and have clean water so that they would live truly healthier. Ok?

Let's pray:
God, we welcome you in this place.
May you come and give the eternal water that you promise.
And through our coins tomorrow, may you provide clean water so that they may live healthier.
With their good health, may they come to know you, too.
In your name, Jesus, we pray. Amen.
