What to Pray?

by Loots Lambrechts

Opening prayer

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me,
    bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.     -   Psalm 103:1-5

Song: Blessed Assurance

We would love for you to play and sing along with us and we have therefore added the chord sheets so that whoever has an instrument lying around the house can join in each Sunday!
