PRELUDE

*CALL  TO  WORSHIP (Responsively)

L: Shall we follow in the way taken by Abraham and Sarah?

P: When Abraham heard the word of the Lord, he rose from his home to travel to an unknown place.

L: His journey took him through hunger and trickery, strife with his family, and war with strong enemies.

P: But Abraham's faith kept him walking. He trusted the Lord!

*HYMN  OF  PRAISE 
 # 714  "I know Whom I have Believed"  lyrics

*UNISON PRAYER ~ God of wondrous love, You graciously called Abraham to an unconditional faith and an unbelievable future. Instill such a faith in us, that we may realize the marvelous destiny that always awaits Your people. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

PRAISE  TIME

“ Come and Find the Quiet Center" # 2128 TFWS lyrics

"In Thee, O Lord, I Put My Trust"
In Thee, O Lord, I put my trust;
I call upon They name;
O save me in Thy righteousness,
Nor let me suffer shame.

Bow down Thy ear to my request,
And swift deliverance send;
Be Thou to me a rock of strength,
A fortress to defend.
Since Thou my Rock and Fortress art,
My Leader be and Guide;
From all temptation rescue me,
Thou dost my strength abide.

Oh, Lord, in Thee is all my trust,
Thou art my God, I cried;
My life, my times are in Thy hand,
I in Thy strength confide.
