Responsive Call to Worship: Psalm 24
Leader: The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.
All: Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place?
Leader: He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
All: Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
Leader: Who is this King of glory?
All: The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory!

All: Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
Leader: And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
All: Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.
Leader: The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working
