Preparing For Worship

Leading up to Sunday, September 4

Scripture Passage

Mark 16: 1-8

Reflection

As a song of adoration, we will sing “All the Poor and Powerless.”

All the poor and powerless

All the lost and lonely

All the thieves will come confess

And know that You are Holy

 

All the hearts who are content

And all who feel unworthy

All who hurt with nothing left

Will know that You are Holy

 

And all will cry out Hallelujah

And we will sing out Hallelujah.

What does Hallelujah really mean? It literally translates to “Praise Jah.” Jah is short for the actual and personal name of God – Jahweh or Yaweh. This is not a lone cry of praise to an unknown, generic god, rather more like a rally cry with one another to give praise to our God. *

As we prepare to listen to our Pastor preach on Jesus’ resurrection, the pivotal event of our faith, consider God’s goodness to rescue us from our poverty and powerlessness with His glorious power and love.
