Power of God”
You have brought us, O God, to another Lord's Day, when we
are privileged to worship you with our brothers and sisters
in Christ. May we have unity of mind and heart as we open
ourselves to the movement of your Holy Spirit. As your love
grows within us, may we have rich fellowship with you and
with one another. In Christ's name. Amen

Pastoral Prayer and Lord’s Prayer
Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
