Shhh, Virtual Worship is Starting

Opening Prayer:

We worship the God who inhabits our world and indwells our lives.

We need not look up to find God; we need only to look around:
within ourselves, beyond ourselves, into the eyes of another.

We need not listen for a distant thunder to find God; we need only listen to:
the music of life, the words of children, the questions of the curious, the rhythm of a heartbeat.

We worship the God who inhabits our world and who indwells our lives.

Amen.

Opening Praise:

Holy Spirit” – Francesca Battistelli


“Your Spirit” – Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Kierra Sheard

Prayer Song:

“Holy Spirit, Come Fill This Place” – Cece Winans

Prayers of the People:

Come, Holy Spirit, Counselor and Defender,

Come as wind to clear our thick clouds of ignorance and unbelief that the eyes of our hearts may see without confusion your glory and your will for our lives.

Come as fire; make us shine with eagerness and joy as we obey your command to make disciples of all nations.

Come with eloquence for our tongues that we may be articulate witnesses to those before whom you would have us testify concerning the grace and glory of God Almighty.

Come with power, energizing our hearts with holy boldness so that we dare to display your love before anyone and everyone.

Come with your holy gifts of ministry so that as one body we can speak and interpret, discern and teach, heal and bless in the spirit of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Come with blessing, so filling our souls with abundance that we delight to share our resources as freely and generously as did our ancestors in faith so long ago.

Come, renew us, transform us, train us and send us so that we can become vessels of your life-giving love, for Jesus’ sake.

Amen!


Offertory Prayer:

God of creation, you formed us out of your incredible love and breathed life into us. By your Spirit breathe new life and faith into our daily living. Lead us to life eternal, by the mighty love of Jesus Christ. O God, show us the power of reconciling love. In your presence on Pentecost, you filled your disciples with strength, vision and confidence. Do so again, here and now. Bring upon us now in this time of celebration, a new sense of your life-giving Spirit.

Amen.

As you enter a new week, may you experience God’s presence.
