    In the Lord we will seek refuge

God will never let us be put to shame.

     The Lord is our rock of refuge;

God is a strong fortress to save!

Opening Prayer  Cathy Bonnett

      Almighty God, in a time of great need you raised up your servants John and Charles Wesley, and by your Spirit inspired them to kindle a flame of sacred love which leaped and ran, an inextinguishable blaze.

            Grant that all those whose hearts have been warmed at these altar fires, being continually refreshed by your grace, may be so devoted to the increase of scriptural holiness throughout the land that in this our time of great need, your will may fully and effectively be done on earth as it is in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 

    your kingdom come, your will be done, 

    on earth as in heaven.   

Give us today our daily bread. 

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
