A Time of Prayer
Rev. Dan Elmore
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

L: Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
C: his love endures forever.
L: Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story
C: those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
L: those he gathered from the lands,
C: from east and west, from north and south.
L: He turned rivers into a desert, flowing springs into thirsty ground,
C: and fruitful land into a salt waste, because of the wickedness of those who lived there.
L: He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs;
C: there he brought the hungry to live, and they founded a city where they could settle.
L: They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest;
C: he blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased, and he did not let their herds diminish.

Joshua 3:1-5, 4:19-24, 5:1
          1 Early in the morning Joshua and all the Israelites set out from Shittim and went to the Jordan, where they camped before crossing over. 2 After three days the officers went throughout the camp, 3 giving orders to the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it. 4 Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before. But keep a distance of about two thousand cubits between you and the ark; do not go near it.” 5 Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.”
          19 On the tenth day of the first month the people went up from the Jordan and camped at Gilgal on the eastern border of Jericho. 20 And Joshua set up at Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken out of the Jordan. 21 He said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 22 tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ 23 For the LORD your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The LORD your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea [b] when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. 24 He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God.”
          5 Now when all the Amorite kings west of the Jordan and all the Canaanite kings along the coast heard how the LORD had dried up the Jordan before the Israelites until they [a] had crossed over, their hearts melted in fear and they no longer had the courage to face the Israelites.

May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ go with you, wherever he may send you;
May he guide you through the wilderness, protect you in the storm;
May he bring you home rejoicing at the wonders he has shown you;
May he bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors! Amen!
