Call to Worship
Every new morning
God gives us freely
Hearts that are thankful,
Strength for the task,
People who love us,
Joy in our service,
all we have need of
If we but ask.
God will be with us
in all our thinking,
in all our speaking,
in all we do.
and as we praise him
by all our actions,
he will be with us,
seeing us through
God in the morning,
God in the noontide,
God in the evening
All through the day;
God is within us
and all around us,
God goes before us,
All of the way
Prayer of Approach & Confession
1 Kings Ch 10: 1-7 Joan Pollok
John Ch 18: 28-38 Lorna Brodie
Holy Spirit, hear us
Help us while we sing;
Breathe into the music
Of the praise we bring.
Holy Spirit, prompt us
When we try to pray;
Nearer come, and teach us 6
what we ought to say.
Holy Spirit, teach us
Through the words we read;
Bring to life the Bible
with the light we need.
Holy Spirit, give us
Each a lively mind;
Make us more like Jesus,
Gracious, pure and kind.
Holy Spirit, help us
daily, by your might,
What is wrong to conquer,
And to choose the right
Longing for light, we wait in darkness.
Longing for truth, we turn to you.
Make us your own, your holy people,
light for the world to see.
Chorus -Christ be our light! Shine in our hearts.
Shine through the darkness.
Christ be our light!
Shine in your church gathered today.
Longing for peace, our world is troubled.
Longing for hope, many despair.
Your word alone has pow’r to save us.
Make us your living voice. Chorus
Longing for food, many are hungry.
Longing for water, many still thirst.
Make us your bread, broken for others,
shared until all are fed. Chorus
Longing for shelter, many are homeless.
Longing for warmth, many are cold.
Make us your building, sheltering others,
walls made of living stones. Chorus
Many the gifts, many the people,
many the hearts that yearn to belong.
Let us be servants to one another,
making your kingdom come. Chorus
Offering and Prayer of Dedication
Prayer for others
Lord of creation, to you be all praise!
Most mighty your working, most wondrous your ways!
Your glory and might are beyond us to tell,
and yet in the heart of the humble you dwell.
Lord of all power, I give you my will,
in joyful obedience your tasks to fulfil.
Your bondage is freedom, your service is song;
and, held in your keeping, my weakness is strong.
Lord of all wisdom, I give you my mind,
rich truth that surpasses man’s knowledge to find.
What eye has not seen and what ear has not heard
is taught by your Spirit and shines from your Word.
Lord of all bounty, I give you my heart;
I praise and adore you for all you impart;
your love to inspire me, your counsel to guide,
your presence to cheer me, whatever betide.
Lord of all being, I give you my all;
if ever I disown you, I stumble and fall;
but, sworn in glad service your word to obey,
I walk in your freedom to the end of the way.
THREE FOLD AMEN
