Thank you for joining with us to worship together through praying and singing, and through hearing and engaging with God’s Word.
Have someone lead your group in a prayer of adoration, exalting and glorifying God for who He is. You may use this prayer as a guide.
Heavenly Father, we praise You and thank You for Your kindness which leads us to repentance. We thank You that You saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of Your own purpose and grace. We praise Your name, which is above all names, and before which every knee shall bow. We pray for Your loving guidance and wisdom to exalt and magnify You in our worship this morning. Amen
Worship: Join your group in worshipping the Lord as you watch these videos. The lyrics are on the screen. As you sing, focus on God and His glorious attributes. Sing to Him and give Him the praise He deserves.
Sermon: Listen as Pastor Adam shares a message on Psalm 23:3 and reflects on Our Restoration for His Recognition. Open your heart to God’s Word and be prepared for reflection, discussion and response.
Reflect on these questions and discuss with your family, friends and/or GCG:
1. Multiple Choice: How do you typically respond when faced with trials of various kinds?

A. Fear
B. Joy & Faith
C. Anger/Frustration
E. Something else

2. What is one example you can think of where you were on the wrong path and then God came after you and restored you to His Righteous Path.

3. What about now? Are there any areas where you need The Lord to restore you? Are you in the midst of a trial and filled with anxiety? Do you need the peace that only Jehovah Shalom can give you? Do you have deep wounds that you need Jehovah Rapha to come and heal? Are you in sin and need the forgiveness and deliverance of Jehovah Tsidkenu?

4. Are you walking in a manner worthy of the gospel, that those around you can look at your life and be pointed to Jehovah Nissi – The Lord Our Banner?

Have someone pray a prayer of confession for the group. You may use this prayer as a guide:
Heavenly Father, forgive us for our many and manifold sins. We have failed to meet the standard of Your righteousness and holiness, and instead of obeying Your commands to love You and love our neighbors, we have loved self instead. We daily wander from You in our hearts and actions, and we desperately need Your grace and mercy for our restoration. We thank You that, for Your name sake You sent Your Son to die on the cross for us, that we may be saved through faith and repentance, and through salvation You restore us to Your paths of righteousness.
Closing Prayer: Have someone in your group close in a prayer of supplication and asking the Spirit to transform us by His grace. You may use this prayer as a guide.
Holy Spirit, we pray that You would enter our hearts with Your righteous conviction and show us our need for salvation in You. We pray that You would empower us to put to death our sinful flesh and live by Your power. Lord, restore us and lead us to righteousness for Your namesake. In Jesus name, Amen.
