His name is Wonderful, his name is Wonderful,

His name is wonderful Jesus, my Lord

He is the mighty King master of everything,

His name is Wonderful, Jesus my Lord.

He’s the great Shepherd, the Rock of all ages

Almighty God is he,

Bow down before him, love and adore him

His name is Wonderful, Jesus my Lord.

Let us pray


Most gracious and loving God, fill our hearts with praise for renewed life in Christ Jesus.

Fill our minds with meditations which are noble and true, that we may be strengthened in our union with Him, for we offer our prayers and our worship in His name.
Amen

Gracious and loving God, we come to you with hearts that need to be opened to your word and your love. There is so much around us that tears at us and causes us to tremble.

Keep us ever mindful of your presence and the hope that you have given us in your Son Jesus Christ.


Spirit of God empower us


Guide us, we pray, as your church, struggling to spread the good news. Keep us focused on the mission and ministry to which you have called us and lead us forward.

We know, Lord, that there
will often be bumps and holes in the road along the way. Save us from dwelling on them and
make us secure in the goals you have placed before us.

Hear our prayers for all who need your tender touch of healing in their lives, those we name before you each day, and those who are known only to you in the depths of our hearts.

Be with those who mourn. May we all remember the love and grace that your faithful people have brought to our world.

We also offer to you, generous God, the wonderful things that have happened in our lives.

We praise you for these gifts. Let us take a moment and share those events of love and joy.

Joyful, joyful, we adore you,

God of glory, Lord of love;

hearts unfold like flow’rs before you,

op’ning to the sun above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;

drive the dark of doubt away;

giver of immortal gladness,

fill us with the light of day!
