CALL TO WORSHIP                                                                                Psalm  98:1-9
 
1 Sing to the Lord a new song for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
 
2 The Lord has made His salvation known and revealed His righteousness to the nations.
 
3 He has remembered His love and His faithfulness to Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
 
4 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music;
 
5 Make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing,
 
6 With trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—shout for joy before the Lord, the King.
 
7 Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.
 
8 Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;
 
9 Let them sing before the Lord, for He comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.

DON’T QUIT John Greenleaf Whitter
 
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
 
Life is strange with it’s twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a failure comes about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell just how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
 
For all the sad words of tongue or pen
The saddest of these: “It might have been”.
 
READING THE BIBLE THROUGH
 
We want to commend everyone who read the Bible through or listened to Bible tapes through the Bible for 2020. His Word is a lamp to our feet and a light on our path (Psalm 119:105). We encourage you to join us again in 2021 reading the Bible through.
 
I also suggest that you read with a pencil and pad. Record the promises of God and make a diligent effort to obey His instruction. Remember that our blessings come with our obedience.
 
 
PRAYER FOCUS PRAYING ALWAYS
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and request. Ephesians 6:18 (NIV)
 
Dr. Frank Laubach gives many ideas for experiments in prayer:
Pray for whoever comes to memory.
Pray when you can’t sleep at night.
 
Pray while taking a walk.
Pray, using a prayer list of missionaries, pastors, of the sick and sorrowing, neighbors, and coworkers.
Pray while reading a newspaper – pause and pray for accident victims, for world leaders.
 
Pray for the Lord to give you open doors to witness.
Paul, recognizing the kind of world in which he lived, with Satan’s powers so intense, tells his friends to pray at all times in the Spirit. And Paul also reminds the Ephesians to pray for all Christians, “and also me.”
 
Why not follow Paul’s example and ask many of our friends and fellow church members to pray for us. And then, let us “give ourselves wholly to prayer…and pray on every occasion in the power of the Spirit.” By Conrad M. Thompson
