Hymns of Praise
SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER
Verse 1 Sweet hour of prayer, Sweet hour of prayer, That calls me from a world of care And bids me at my Father’s throne Make all my wants and wishes known! In seasons of distress and grief My soul has often found relief And oft escaped the tempter’s snare By thy return, sweet hour of prayer. Verse 2 Sweet hour of prayer, Sweet hour of prayer, Thy wings shall my petition bear To Him whose truth and faithfulness Engage the waiting soul to bless; And since He bids me seek His face, Believe His word and trust His grace, I’ll cast on Him my ev’ry care, And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer. Verse 3 Sweet hour of prayer, Sweet hour of prayer, May I thy consolation share, Till from Mount Pisgah’s lofty height I view my home and take my flight; This robe of flesh I’ll drop, And rise to seize the everlasting prize, And shout, while passing through the air, Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer. 7:30 a.m.

‘TIS SO SWEET TO TRUST IN JESUS
Verse 1 ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to take Him at His word, Just to rest upon His promise, Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord.” Chorus Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him! How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er! Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O for grace to trust Him more!
HYMNS OF PRAISE

11:00 a.m.

Verse 2 O how sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to trust His cleansing blood, Just in simple faith to plunge me ‘Neath the healing, cleansing flood! Verse 3 Yes, ‘tis sweet to trust in Jesus, Just from sin and self to cease, Just from Jesus simply taking Life and rest and joy and peace. Verse 4 I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee, Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend; And I know that Thou art with me, Will be with me to the end.

Unison Scriptures
7:30 a.m.

1 Kings 19:1-12 (NRSV)
Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. 2Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life like the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.” 3Then he was afraid; he got up and fled for his life, and came to Beer-sheba, which belongs to Judah; he left his servant there. 4But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a solitary broom tree. He asked that he might die: “It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am no better than my ancestors.” 5Then he lay down under the broom tree and fell asleep. Suddenly an angel touched him and said to him, “Get up and eat.”
1

your prophets with the sword. I alone am left, and they are seeking my life, to take it away.” He said, “Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence.

11:00 a.m.

ACTS 4:32-37 (NRSV)
Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. 33With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. 34There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold. 35They laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need. 36There was a Levite, a native of Cyprus, Joseph, to whom the apostles gave the name Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”). 37He sold a field that belonged to him, then brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
32

He looked, and there at his head was a cake baked on hot stones, and a jar of water. He ate and drank, and lay down again. 7The angel of the Lord came a second time, touched him, and said, “Get up and eat, otherwise the journey will be too much for you.” 8He got up, and ate and drank; then he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God. 9At that place he came to a cave, and spent the night there. Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 10He answered, “I have been very zealous for the Lord, the God of hosts; for the Israelites have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed

Unison Scriptures
11:00 a.m. cont.

ACTS 6:1-7 (NRSV)
Now during those days, when the disciples were increasing in number, the Hellenists complained against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution of food. 2And the twelve called together the whole community of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should neglect the word of God in order to wait on tables. 3Therefore, friends, select from among yourselves seven men of good standing, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may appoint to this task, 4while we, for our part, will devote ourselves to prayer and to serving the word.” 5What they said pleased the whole community, and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, together with Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolaus, a proselyte of Antioch. 6They had these men stand before the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them.

6:00 p.m.

HEBREWS 13:1-3 (NIV)
Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. 2Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. 3Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Someone You Should Know
Trinity family, We extend congratulations to our member, Ms. Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme, who was recently featured in Forbes magazine’s May, 2013 issue, ranking No. 49 of 100 of “The World’s Most Powerful Women.” As noted in Forbes, Ms. Cousin fed over 97 million people this year. Her agenda for the rest of the year is to transition from food aid to food assistance in an attempt to shift from handouts to self-sustenance. Below is the article, as published in Forbes.

Ertharin Cousin began her tenure as the twelfth Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme on 5 April 2012. Cousin brings more than twenty-five years of national and international non-profit, government, and corporate leadership experience focusing on hunger, food, and resilience strategies. Cousin guides the World Food Programme in meeting urgent food needs while championing longer-term solutions to food insecurity and hunger. As the leader of the world’s largest humanitarian organization with approximately 15,000 staff serving about 100 million beneficiaries in 78 countries across the world, she is an exceptional advocate for improving the lives of hungry people worldwide, and travels extensively to raise awareness of food insecurity and chronic malnutrition. In 2009, Ertharin Cousin was nominated by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture, and head of the U.S. Mission to the U.N. Agencies in Rome. During her nearly three years as the chief U.S. diplomatic voice for famine relief and hunger solutions, Cousin helped guide U.S. and international policy around some of the most devastating and life threatening situations in the world. She advocated for aid strategies that integrate a transition from relief to development, including following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and for country-led sustainable agriculture programmes, particularly in the aftermath of the 2010 flooding in Pakistan and in response to the 2011 drought in the Horn of Africa. For more information on the World Food Programme, visit www.wfp.org.

SOMEONE YOU SHOULD KNOW

Youth Revival Prayer
As members of the Youth Revival Council, we have written prayers to prepare us for “Hip Hope” Youth Revival-2013. We ask that each Sunday during prayer time and during your Wednesday prayer and fasting that you keep us and every child, young person, teen, and young adult in prayer.

Dear God, We pray that you will help our children come to know that self esteem is about knowing oneself better than anyone in the world does. Lord, teach us that when one knows thy self, there is no outside force or influence that can diminish the attributes you planted inside of us. Father, help our youth see the value they add to the world on a daily basis and that it is only a preview of the greatness they have yet to show to the world. Remind our youth, dear God that following You is the way they should go on the journey to becoming all that you intended for them. But above all, God, give them the strength to fight the demons that try to cloud their vision of You. This is my prayer. In Jesus' name, we pray, Amen. Deanna James Junior, Savannah State

BIBLE STUDY WITH THE PASTORAL INTERNS!
(For Male High School Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors)

Facilitated by Min. Devon J. Crawford

“THE COURAGE TO DREAM”

RADICAL PEACEMAKING TEAM OF THE CHICAGO METROPOLITAN ASSOCIATION
“God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be Called the children of God.” Matthew 5:9

Friday, July 26 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Room 120
Young black men are abounding with talents and potential. A quick survey of brilliant black men would show us that a disciplined work ethic and boundless dreaming allowed many of our ancestors to influence the history of our nation and world. However, our ability to dream can be limited by people or circumstances that have been discouraged and lost faith in gifts God has given them. As we study the narrative of Joseph, we will rediscover the value of dreams and how to “hold fast to dreams” in troubling times. For more information, email Min. Devon, djcrawford@trinitychicago.org.

Facilitated by Min. Porsha Damita Williams

“I AIN’T GOT TIME FOR THAT: ESTABLISHING YOUR BOUNDARIES” Thursdays, July 25 and August 1 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Room 202

RAISING LEADERS and DEVELOPING DISCIPLES
January • Matthew 16:24 (NLT) Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me." February • Luke 4:18-19 (NIV) The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. March • Luke 10:19 (NIV) I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. April • Romans 10:1-2 (NLT) Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. May • 1 Corinthians 13:8 (NIV) Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. June • Romans 5:8 (NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. July • Philippians 4:13 (NLT) For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. August • Jeremiah 1-7 (NLT) The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you." September • Isaiah 1:3 (NLT) Even an ox knows its owner, and a donkey recognizes its master’s care—but Israel doesn’t know its master. My people don’t recognize my care for them. October • Isaiah 40:29 (KJV) He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. November • John 17:21 (KJV) That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. December • Matthew 1:23 (KJV) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
