*Call to Worship                                                                     

Leader:   Leader: People of God, we are together to worship and pray.

People: We do not know how to pray.

Leader:   Jesus Christ, our risen Lord and Savior, has taught us how to pray.

People: But we do not know how to pray as we ought to pray.

Leader:   The Holy Spirit engages with our spirit to pray as we ought.

People: But how can we have the Holy Spirit?

Leader:   Our heavenly Father gives the Holy Spirit to all who ask.

People: Then, in the power of the Holy Spirit, we will worship and pray.

All:         Thanks be to God.

*Invocation                           

When we gather in your name, we are changed. There is no way around it. We cannot come together in your presence and not be moved. So, today we surrender to your moving and to the ways you desire to change us. Let this hour together be sacred, and may your name be made great. You are holy, worthy and full of glory. We are humbled to be in your presence. Receive our worship as an offering of praise. It is all for you. Amen.
