This is week three of our annual summer series, Christ in the Psalms. The Psalms give us a vocabulary and a “hymnal” for relating to God through the full range of human experience and emotion, ultimately pointing us to Jesus. Now in its seventh year, Christ in the Psalms has covered one psalm each week, up through Psalm 79. You can find all of those sermons here. Additionally, over the last four years, different artists within our community have done a piece of artwork for each Psalm, starting with Psalm 41. You can see and read about each of those here.
This week we’ll discuss Psalm 80. Here’s how you can prepare:
1. Read through our text, Psalm 80.
Psalm 80 teaches us to pray for God’s help in changing both our circumstances and our own hearts in the process. This beautiful prayer shows us that the change Israel needed (and the change that we need) will only come through Christ Himself.
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 42:5–6a
Fall Afresh (Jeremy Riddle)
Lord I Need You (Carson, Maher, Nockels, Reeves, Stanfill)
CONFESSION OF SIN: John 15:5
Your Name Is Good (Psalm 54) (Joel Limpic, Scott Mills)
Mighty To Save (Ben Fielding, Reuben Morgan)
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: Zephaniah 3:17
GREETING, SERMON, & COMMUNION
RESPONSE: Song & Prayer
Jesus What A Savior (Kirby Kaple)
Revive Us Again (Charlie Hall, John J. Husband, William P. Mackay, Dustin Ragland)
