Bible Mission Sunday order of Worship

(All the entrants of the church should remain silent with their absolute concentration upon the Lord)
While the congregation stands up and starts singing the final verse of the hymn (ex: Subhakaraa), the preacher enters the church.

Preacher (P) : In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Congregation (C) : Amen.

(P) :(Prayer of Doxology)

: O God You revealed Yourself as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, so we offer our many praises for Your revelation.

We exalt Your Honour for granting us this gracious time to worship You now.

Even as the angels and the heavenly saints are praising You; besides their praises You are desirous of our praises too. So we exalt You.

You are being revered and esteemed because of Your whole creation.

So along with the whole creation we bow down before You.

O Lord, we beseech You to bless this worship so that You alone shall be glorified all through.

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

(P) : Dear beloved and dearly beloved in the Lord, when we come into the presence of the Most Holy God, before we could enter into the full order of worship, it is very beneficial for us to confess our sinful state and get forgiveness.

If we confess our sins, He can be trusted upon wholeheartedly and is righteous, so He forgives our sins and purifies us from all unrighteousness.

If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His Word has no place in us.

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, and whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

(P) : Let us confess our sins.

(The congregation should repeat after the preacher.)

(P) & (C) : O the Most Holy God! We are sinners by our very birth and by our very nature.

We are sinners because of our thoughts and looks.

We are sinners even in our hearing and talking.

Moreover, we are sinners because of our behaviour and deeds.

And we are unworthy to receive Your grace.

We beseech You to forgive us through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

(P) : Beloved ones! The Father is forgiving all the sins of all the believers by His immense love. He does not like to punish. Moreover, He will not remember our sins. So let us praise such Father forever.

(P) : O Father! Since You are Holy, You are supposed to detest sinners. But You are not doing so; You are forgiving them with Your tender love and care. So we exalt You. Amen. (The congregation sits) (With the faith that the Father has forgiven our sins let us sing the song Deva samstuti Stanzas 6, 7, 8 )

(P) : Before we start reading the Scripture let us all stand up to honour the Word of God.
