Call to Worship
How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long will I store up anxious concerns within me,
agony in my mind every day?
How long will my enemy dominate me?
3 Consider me and answer, Lord my God.
Restore brightness to my eyes;
otherwise, I will sleep in death.
4 My enemy will say, “I have triumphed over him,”
and my foes will rejoice because I am shaken.
5 But I have trusted in your faithful love;
my heart will rejoice in your deliverance.
6 I will sing to the Lord
because he has treated me generously.

O Come To The Altar
The Reading Of God’s Word
Matthew 9:18-26 (Read by Pamela Starkey)
18 As he was telling them these things, suddenly one of the leaders came and knelt down before him, saying, “My daughter just died, but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.”
19 So Jesus and his disciples got up and followed him.
20 Just then, a woman who had suffered from bleeding for twelve years approached from behind and touched the end of his robe,
21 for she said to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I’ll be made well.”
22 Jesus turned and saw her. “Have courage, daughter,” he said. “Your faith has saved you.” And the woman was made well from that moment.
23 When Jesus came to the leader’s house, he saw the flute players and a crowd lamenting loudly.
24 “Leave,” he said, “because the girl is not dead but asleep.” And they laughed at him.
25 After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl got up.
26 Then news of this spread throughout that whole area.
