I am weak, but Thou art strong.
Jesus keep me from all wrong.
I’ll be satisfied as long,
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it Jesus, if you please,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
Through the world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
Only Thee, dear Lord, only Thee.
When this troubled life is o’er
Time for me will be no more
Guide me gently, safely on,
To Thy shore, dear Lord, to Thy shore.

21From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.
22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”
23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.
The words of the Teacher,[a] son of David, king in Jerusalem:
2 “Meaningless! Meaningless!”
says the Teacher.
Everything is meaningless.”
I said to myself, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good.” But that also proved to be meaningless. 2 “Laughter,” I said, “is madness. And what does pleasure accomplish?” 3 I tried cheering myself with wine, and embracing folly—my mind still guiding me with wisdom. I wanted to see what was good for people to do under the heavens during the few days of their lives.
4 I undertook great projects: I built houses for myself and planted vineyards. 5 I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them. 6 I made reservoirs to water groves of flourishing trees. 7 I bought male and female slaves and had other slaves who were born in my house. I also owned more herds and flocks than anyone in Jerusalem before me. 8 I amassed silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired male and female singers, and a harem[a] as well—the delights of a man’s heart. 9 I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me. In all this my wisdom stayed with me.
10 I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor,
and this was the reward for all my toil.
11 Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.
Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the duty of all mankind.
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.

OPENING PRAYER for WORSHIP
P: Eternal God, we have gathered today to rejoice in You. To rejoice
In the creation of world and in the gift of the breathe of life,
In the daily bread You provide and in the protection You give,
In the redemption You won for us through Jesus and in the faith Your
Spirit has created in us.
In the promise of strength for each day and in the promise of eternal
life with You.
Lord Jesus, you promised, “Where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Be with us as You have promised. May Your presence humble us today. You tell us to not give up meeting together so that we might encourage one another. Use us today, Lord, to bless our brothers and sisters.
C: Here may the faithful find salvation, and the careless be awakened.
Here may the doubting find faith, and the anxious be encouraged.
Here may the tempted find help, and the troubled find comfort.
Here may the weary find rest, and the strong be renewed.
P: O Holy Spirit, You poured out Your power on Your people on Pentecost. We pray that today You would once again pour out Your power on Your people here.
C: Come to cleanse us within.
and to inspire us.
Come to lead us in the darkness.
And to dispel our ignorance.
Come to enable us in our weaknesses.
And to dwell in us.
Convict us, convert us, consecrate us. Until we are all set free from the service of ourselves to be Your servants to the world. In Jesus’ name, we pray
P: Come, let us worship the Lord who loved us enough to die for us.
CHORUS: Bless the Lord, O my soul O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before O my soul
I worship Your holy name
You're rich in love and You're slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all of Your goodness, I will keep on singing
10,000 reasons for my heart to find. CHORUS
