“Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing; power and majesty, praise to the King. Mountains bow down and the seas will roar at the sound of your name. I sing for joy at the work of your hands; forever I’ll love you, for ever I’ll stand. Nothing compares to the promise I have in you.” ~ from “Shout to the Lord” by Darlene Zschech (Hymn 94)

Join us at our Lord’s Table this Sunday at 9:30 or 11:00.  Pastor will be speaking from Psalm 23.

Dial 9 for Worship – Read Psalm 9:1-14

You’re in the dentist’s office and it’s taking longer than expected. You’re late for another appointment, so you ask to use the phone. You dial the number twice and nothing happens. “How do I dial out?” you ask in frustration. “I’m sorry,” says the receptionist, “you need to dial 9 first.”


You’ve come to church to worship God. You’re singing. You’re praying along with the pastor and following the Bible passages as they are read. But nothing’s happening inside. You want to worship the Lord, but you’re just going through the motions. What can you do?

Here’s a suggestion: Dial 9. Open your Bible to Psalm 9 and follow David’s prompts as he expresses his heartfelt praise to the Lord.

Open your heart (v.1). Let praise roll forth!

Review all the things He has done for you (v.1).

Rejoice! Be glad! Sing! (v.2)

Acknowledge that He defends you (vv.3-5).

Go to Him for refuge (v.9).

Talk about what He’s done for you (v.11).

Receive His mercy and rejoice in His salvation (vv.13-14).

Try following David’s example. You’ll reconnect with God in your worship and praise.
