Hymn "Precious Lord, Take My Hand” Phyllis Rhodes
(1&4)Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, let me stand,
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.
Thru the storm, thru the night, lead me on to the light, Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.
(2) When my way grows drear, precious Lord, linger near,
When my life is almost gone,
Hear my cry, hear my call, hold my hand lest I fall.
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.
(3) When the darkness appears and the night draws near,
And the day is past and gone,
At the river I stand, guide my hand lest I fall.
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.

The son's death
Romans 5:10
Leader: Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord!
People: For you formed the earth: the mountains, the sea, and
the dry land.
Leader: Come, let us bow down in worship.
People: For you have patience with our grumbling and testing. You
lead us on new paths of thanksgiving and praise.
Leader: Come, let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation.
People: For we have been reconciled through Jesus' death and are
saved through his life!
Comment
An old Scottish preacher said,
"Peace is joy resting,
Joy is peace dancing."
The need to practice and receive both peace and joy is a given in the Christian's life, but somehow joy and peace often elude us in our busyness. I believe that one of the biggest energy crises today is right at home, within ourselves.
The Lenten season is our occasion to slow down, to take time to think, to allow our sufferings to produce perseverance, then character, then hope. Unexamined, the ugly parts of ourselves stay that way. But brought into the consciousness of Christ's loving and molding, they can be transformed into peace and joy. Others can benefit from us as we share in the joy and peace of our salvation.
Prayer of confession
Christ, our Lord and Savior, we come to you as busy and broken children in need of your healing. Forgive our hardened hearts toward you and toward our own desire for admitting who we really are. Turn our fear to hope. Calm our rushing spirits. Help us to receive your tender and empowering love. Amen.
