*The Greeting
If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side: when the weather patterns changed and
tornados, hurricanes, and wildfires came out of nowhere;.
If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side: when the flood waters came and flooded our
fields and came into our homes;
If it had not been for the Lord who was on our side: When life happened, and things did not go as
we planned;
Where would we be? How would we make it through? Let us worship the one who is always on
our side.

Thanksgivings and Intercessions
The Morning Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer (all join hands)
God, when we hear the daily news, it is easy to think that life is a valley of sorrows filled with tears.
Remind us through the stories of survivors, heroes and heroines, that you are always with us and
that your love never fails. We celebrate the times when heaven and earth meet: the times you break
into our lives in ways that make us exclaim: if it had not been for the Lord who was on our side…
Thank you for a love that transcends calamity; a love that lifts up those who suffer, a love that
frees our lives to rejoice. Amen.
