CENTERING WORDS Jesus walked this earth for many days following his death on the cross. As He prepared for his rise, His ascension, to heaven, He looked at his disciples and told them they would receive the power of the Holy Spirit and they would be his witnesses. WE are his disciples. Come, children of God, let us open our hearts to the silent presence of the Spirit of Jesus Christ that we may be his witness here and to the ends of the earth.
CALL TO WORSHIP (From Psalms 1, 47 & 93) Leader: Blessed is the man who delights in the Lord All: How awesome is the Lord most high, the king over all the earth! Leader: God has ascended amid shouts of Joy All: The Lord reigns, He is robed in majesty and armed with strength Leader: Sing praises to our king who reigns over all the nations All: Sing praises to God Almighty.
OPENING PRAYER (in unison) (based on John 15) God our Father accept us as we are. Take our faith as it is and move us to higher places. God, we pray that you receive from us this hour all the praise, thanksgiving and love we are able to return to you. Pour upon us the Holy Spirit of Christ himself and enlarge our vision with Your Word. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
