By Senior Pastor Don Roy Hemingway.
Gooooooooooooooooooooood Evening brethren, peace unto you and the grace of our lord Jesus be with you. May the Almighty God of hosts stay ever with you this evening and thank you, for joining us here at ‘The Church of Jerusalem and the Christian Nation’ for worship and praise. Let us begin as is our tradition every day here at the Nation, by reading from the word of God. Amen………
Psalm 71. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 In Thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be put to confusion.
2 Deliver me in Thy righteousness, and cause me to escape; incline Thine ear unto me, and save me.
3 Be Thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort; Thou hast given commandment to save me, for Thou art my rock and my fortress.
4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
5 For Thou art my hope, O Lord God; Thou art my trust from my youth.
6 By Thee have I been held from the womb; Thou art He that took me out of my mother’s womb. My praise shall be continually of Thee.
7 I am as a wonder unto many, but Thou art my strong refuge.
8 Let my mouth be filled with Thy praise, and with Thy honor all the day.
9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
10 For mine enemies speak against me, and they that lie in wait for my soul take counsel together,
11 saying, “God hath forsaken him; persecute and take him, for there is none to deliver him.”
12 O God, be not far from me; O my God, make haste to help me.
13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonor that seek my hurt.
14 But I will hope continually and will yet praise Thee more and more.
15 My mouth shall show forth Thy righteousness and Thy salvation all the day, for I know not the numbers thereof.
16 I will go in the strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Thy righteousness, even of Thine only.
17 O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works.
18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not, until I have shown Thy strength unto this generation and Thy power to every one that is to come.
19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things. O God, who is like unto Thee!
20 Thou, who hast shown me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
22 I will also praise Thee with the psaltery for Thy truth, O my God; unto Thee will I sing with the harp, O Thou Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto Thee, and my soul which Thou hast redeemed.
24 My tongue also shall talk of Thy righteousness all the day long; for they are confounded, for they are brought to shame that seek my hurt.
GLORY be to God on high, and on earth peace, good will towards men. We praise thee, we bless thee, we worship thee, we glorify thee, we give thanks to thee for thy great glory, O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father Almighty.
O Lord, the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ; O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Thou that takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. Thou that sittest at the right hand of God the Father, have mercy upon us. For thou only art holy; thou only art the Lord; thou only, O Christ, with the Holy Ghost, art most high in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
Have a great day Brothers and Sisters of the CJCN, The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace, now and evermore, Amen.
