Welcome

 

Reading: Psalm 145:8,14-21

 

Gathering Prayer

 

So we come to worship you and proclaim your ways of faithfulness and steadfast love.

We will tell of God's love, which unfolds in our lives.

 

We come to worship you, for we are your people, rejoicing in your graciousness.

God is always with us, there is nothing which can keep us apart.

 

We come to worship you, our God who keeps promises.

We rejoice with God who is with us always.

 

Song: Here I am to Worship

 

Light of the world

You stepped down into darkness

Opened my eyes, let me see

Beauty that made this heart adore You

Hope of a life spent with You

 

Here I am to worship

Here I am to bow down

Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely

Altogether worthy

Altogether wonderful to me

 

King of all days

Oh so highly exalted

Glorious in heaven above

Humbly You came to the earth You created

All for love's sake became poor

Prayers for the world

 

To you we bring our prayer this day – for the lost, the lonely, the sad and the worried,

We hold them up before you

 

The displaced, the disregarded, the ignored and invisible

We hold them up before you

 

For those whose mental or physical health is dragging them down

For those too scared to take a risk on You

For those afraid of life and what it offers

We hold them up before you

 

You we praise, God in Community, Holy in One,

even as we pray as we are taught, saying,

 

Lord’s prayer

 

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours.

Now and forever.  Amen.

 

Closing Prayer

 

Go forth to proclaim God's constant love.

We will live out that love for everyone we meet.

 

Go forth to unfold God's Word to the world.

We will gather up the tears of those around us,

as we offer the healing grace of Jesus.

 

Go forth to tell stories of hope and peace.

We will spread the Spirit of life all around us.

 

The Grace

 

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit

Be always with us.  Amen.
