Nehemiah 12:27-47 Our Father, You have accomplished so much in our lives and in our church. Today we offer great sacrifices and thanks, because You have given us great joy. Forgive us for taking credit for Your accomplishments or deflecting responsibility for our failures. We worship You in Spirit and in truth today. We want our rejoicing to be heard far away so the world will see our great God. May our worship continue outside of this place of worship as we live for the One who died for us. Amen.
