Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany

Call to Worship  – Psalm 71:1-6

One: Blessed be God ☩ , Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Many: And blessed be his Kingdom, now and forever.

One: In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge; let me never be ashamed.

Many: In your righteousness, deliver me and set me free; incline your ear to me and save me.

One: Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe; you are my crag and my stronghold.

Many: Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the clutches of the evildoer and the oppressor.

One: For you are my hope, O Lord God, my confidence since I was young.

Many: I have been sustained by you ever since I was born; from my mother’s womb you have been my strength; my praise shall be always of you.

One: Come, let us worship.

Collect

Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
