The Word for Today and Worship

Philippians 4:2-7

I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to agree in the Lord. Yes, I also ask you, true partner, to help these women who have contended for the gospel at my side, along with Clement and the rest of my coworkers whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Psalm 69:1-4

Save me, God,
for the water has risen to my neck.
I have sunk in deep mud, and there is no footing;
I have come into deep water,
and a flood sweeps over me.
I am weary from my crying;
my throat is parched.
My eyes fail, looking for my God.
Those who hate me without cause
are more numerous than the hairs of my head;
my deceitful enemies, who would destroy me,
are powerful.
Though I did not steal, I must repay.

Psalm 17:6-9

I call on you, God,
because you will answer me;
listen closely to me; hear what I say.
Display the wonders of your faithful love,
Savior of all who seek refuge
from those who rebel against your right hand.
Protect me as the pupil of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
from the wicked who treat me violently,
my deadly enemies who surround me.

Psalm 18:6-7

I called to the Lord in my distress,
and I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry to him reached his ears.

Then the earth shook and quaked;
the foundations of the mountains trembled;
they shook because he burned with anger.

Psalm 19:1-4a

The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the expanse proclaims the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour out speech;
night after night they communicate knowledge.
There is no speech; there are no words;
their voice is not heard.
Their message (1) has gone out to the whole earth,
and their words to the ends of the world.

Psalm 68:7

God, when you went out before your people,
when you marched through the desert,

Psalm 72:1

God, give your justice to the king and your righteousness to the king’s son.

Verse 1   
I was a wretch, I remember who I was
I was lost, I was blind, I was running out of time.
Sin separated, the breach was far too wide
But from the far side of the chasm, You had me in Your sight

Verse 2
So You made a way, across the great divide
Left behind, Heaven's throne, to build it here inside
There at the cross You paid the debt I owed
Broke my chains, Freed my soul and for the first time I had Hope 

Thank You Jesus, for the blood applied
Thank You Jesus, it has washed me white
Thank You Jesus, You have saved my life 
Brought me from the darkness into glorious light

Verse 3 
You took my place, laid inside my tomb of sin
You were buried for three days but then You walked right out again
Now death has no sting and life has no end
For I have been transformed by the blood of the Lamb

There is nothing stronger 
Than the wonder working power of the blood the blood
That calls us sons and daughters 
We are ransomed by our Father 
Through the blood 
There is nothing stronger 
OH the wonder working power of the blood the blood
That calls us sons and daughters 
We are ransomed by our Father 
Through the Blood 
The Blood
