GATHERING SONG   "Woke Up This Morning"   # TFWS # 2082

*CALL TO WORSHIP .
One: God of Life,
People: you are as near to us as our breath.
One: Touch our eyes
People: that we may see you;
One: Open our ears
People: that we may hear your voice;
One: Enter our hearts
People: that we may know your love.
One: Grace our souls and bodies with your presence,
People: that we might feel your strength and your healing touch.
Come, God of breath and wholeness, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.


*Hymn of Praise     “My Tribute”          #99

*Invocation (Unison)

O God, at times we know the pain of being exiled - lamenting what once was and never will be again. In those times, remind us of your power and your faithfulness to do more than what we can imagine. May we step forward with
boldness, trusting your promises; for you did not give us a spirit of timidity, but rather a spirit of power and of love. In Christ's name we pray. Amen.

Praises, Joys and Concerns

LITANY   (instert)

by Bishop Adam J. Richardson, Jr

Lord’s Prayer

Our 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,
the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
