Call to Worship                                                                         Psalm 116:1-2 CEB

I love the Lord because he hears my requests for mercy.

I’ll call out to him as long as I live because he listens closely to me.

 

Opening Prayer

Lord of all nations, you hold this fragile world securely in your hands; at the same time you are so personal as to live within each believer through your Spirit. Meet us this day. Help us to see you in each living person. Help us to hear you in the words of Holy Scripture. Convince us of your presence as we worship so that we may be inspired to live our lives for your glory and offer your love to all. Through Christ, our Lord and Savior, we pray. Amen.

 

*Welcoming the Light of Christ

Light your candle to symbolize the light of Christ in the world, in your life, and in your space.

The Lord’s Prayer ~ Bishop Sally Dyck and the NIC Cabinet (Video) (Audio)

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

 

*Following the Light of Christ
