Let's sing these words of the song 'O worship the King' to God (and to ourselves!)

1 O worship the King all-glorious above,
O gratefully sing his power and his love:
our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

2 O tell of his might and sing of his grace,
whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is his path on the wings of the storm.

3 Your bountiful care, what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.

4 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
in you do we trust, nor find you to fail.
Your mercies, how tender, how firm to the end,
our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!

5 O measureless Might, unchangeable Love,
whom angels delight to worship above!
Your ransomed creation, with glory ablaze,
in true adoration shall sing to your praise!

We'll now listen to God as He speaks to us in and through His Word, the Bible

Psalm 118

Let’s respond by speaking to Him for ourselves

O Lord, save us (Psalm 118:25)

Say sorry to God for how we have not loved Him as we've broken His laws and put our affections on His gifts rather than on Him the giver.

Ask Him for help in those things in your life that are needs, whether that is to do with your fears for your own health or uncertainty/difficulty you are facing financially. 

Give thanks to the LORD (Psalm 118:29) because he has answered us in the past and will do so again (Psalm 118:21) 

Let’s speak to God for others

Birmingham City Mission 

  • work among the homeless (which presumably will become more pressured and in greater demand in the coming months)
  • creativity for the children's/youth and missionaries in proclaiming the gospel 
  • growth in godliness and prayerful dependence for all BCM workers 
  • provision of funding (remembering the Lord owns the cattle on a thousand hills! He's well able to!) 

NHS & Govt 

Please see the WhatsApp video by a Christian sister working in the NHS. She gives plenty of ideas for some specific ways we can pray today and this week ahead.


  • give thanks for the births of Sophie (Steve & Isobel's granddaughter) and Reuben (Joann's fifth great grandson).
  • pray for Ann and family, for Tim too as he prepares for the funeral next week (15th April). 
  • pray for those who are undergoing treatment for longer term illness (eg. Donna, Sylvia) as well as others known to us who are ill, whether with COVID-19 like symptoms or not. Dot, from Friday Club, was taken to hospital this week. June Fellows has been in and out of hospital and Janet (Gill's mum) came out of Rowley only to have a fall and be admitted to Sandwell.  

As we close, let's sing to God, rejoicing in Jesus our King

1 Ride on, ride on in majesty
as all the crowds 'Hosanna!' cry:
through waving branches slowly ride,
O Saviour, to be crucified.

2 Ride on, ride on in majesty,
in lowly pomp ride on to die:
O Christ, your triumph now begin
with captured death, and conquered sin!

3 Ride on, ride on in majesty
the angel armies of the sky
look down with sad and wondering eyes
to see the approaching sacrifice.

4 Ride on, ride on in majesty,
the last and fiercest foe defy:
the Father on his sapphire throne
awaits his own anointed Son.

5 Ride on, ride on in majesty,
in lowly pomp ride on to die:
bow your meek head to mortal pain,
then take, O God, your power and reign!

... the Risen King!

Let Israel say: His love endures for ever 

Let the house of Aaron say: His love endures for ever

Let those who fear the Lord say: His love endures for ever
