Dare to Have a Purpose True

Dare to Have a Purpose True

Daniel 3

Call to Worship: Psalm 86:8-12 (NIV)

     Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
              no deeds can compare with yours.
     All the nations you have made
              will come and worship before you, Lord;
              they will bring glory to your name.
10      For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
              you alone are God.

11      Teach me your way, Lord,
              that I may rely on your faithfulness;
          give me an undivided heart,
              that I may fear your name.
12      I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
              I will glorify your name forever.

Scripture Reading: Psalm 115:1-9 (NIV)

     Not to us, Lord, not to us
              but to your name be the glory,
              because of your love and faithfulness.

     Why do the nations say,
              “Where is their God?”
     Our God is in heaven;
              he does whatever pleases him.
     But their idols are silver and gold,
              made by human hands.
     They have mouths, but cannot speak,
              eyes, but cannot see.
     They have ears, but cannot hear,
              noses, but cannot smell.
     They have hands, but cannot feel,
              feet, but cannot walk,
              nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
     Those who make them will be like them,
              and so will all who trust in them.

     All you Israelites, trust in the Lord—
              he is their help and shield.
