Gathering Together

elizabeth anderson-bowen

As we gather in this sacred moment for a sacred purpose, 

let us make the most of our time together. 

We have come to worship the Lord our God. 

As we sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 

let us make the most of our time together. 

We have come to worship the Lord our God. 

As we respond to the melody in our hearts, 

let us make the most of our time together. 

We have come to worship the Lord our God. 

 

God of courage, 

you gave Esther the strength to speak out 

and the intelligence she needed to save her people. 

Help us to believe 

that you are still present and active 

in this world 

and that your grace remains 

as an everlasting force in our lives. 

In Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

Prayers of the Community

elizabeth anderson-bowen

Let us pray to the God of mercy, through our savior,  

Jesus Christ, saying, 

Lord in your mercy, Hear our prayer. 

 

Freed by God in Christ to live and love and serve, we pray for the church, those in need, and all of God’s beloved creation. 

 

Gracious God, you gather people of faith in every time and every place to be the risen body of Christ in the world. Enliven the church to nourish its members, to love the earth, and to serve its neighbors. Lord in your mercy, 

 

Hear our prayer. 

 

Creative God, you weave together the fabric of the universe. Forests and fields bear the banner of your abundance. Give us wisdom and discernment to be good stewards of our resources. Lord in your mercy, 

 

Hear our prayer 

 

Sovereign God, you bless people with intelligence and compassion. Inspire citizens to raise up good leaders who seek peace and reconciliation among nations and who long to repair the world. Lord in your mercy, 

 

Hear our prayer. 

 

Loving God, you house the homeless, free the captive, and heal the sick. Make our hands your hands in service to strangers and friends. We pray especially for… Lord in your mercy, 

 

Hear our prayer. 

 

Welcoming God, you have given us to each other in this congregation. Make us glad to receive those you send to us and ready to receive their unique gifts and perspectives. Lord in your mercy, 

 

Hear our prayer. 

 

In every time and place you raise up witnesses who testify to your love and tender mercy. We remember with thanksgiving all who made your word known in the world. Lord in your mercy, 

 

Hear our prayer. 

 

Into your wide embrace, gracious God, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in your boundless mercy through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 

 

Amen.  

 


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,

for ever and ever.

Amen.

Blessing

pastor ed walker
