O Worship the King - #26 Lighting of the Candles Placement of the Bible Prayer of Confession Almighty God, it is only by your kindness and grace that we find our place in your kingdom. You do not ask us to measure up or become worthy of your favor. You are generous with your blessing, loving what we find unlovable. Your kindness leads us to repentance, and so we make our confession today knowing that we will find mercy where we have failed. Forgive us and teach us to live in the blessing you so freely offer. Hear us now as we continue our confession in silence... Assurance of Pardon *Congregational Response

Blessed Are They Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are all those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. Blessed are they who make peace, for they shall be children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness, For theirs is the kingdom of God. Blessed are they. If for Jesus’ sake people insult you and persecute you, falsely accuse you, Rejoice, be glad! Great is your reward which now awaits you in heaven. Blessed are they… *Doxology
