Opening prayers or Call to worship

Fall on us today Lord:

come upon us as we are

in our everyday lives,

and surprise us.

Move among us, move within us,

move us;

in all we do and through all we do

bring a spark,

light a flame

so that we begin to see a way

and start to lighten the path

of those around us.






we are in here,

and the world is just out there,

a world that can seem so big and confusing.

We want to walk through it with your sure steps; often we fall.

We want to be full of love; our real feeling is fear.

So before we shutter our eyes from uncomfortable sights

and bolt our minds against new ideas,

our heartfelt cry is for you to walk among us and wake us.

Breathe on us

like a mighty gusting wind.

Breathe life into us, into our hearts and souls

and blow away our dusty reluctance to move on,

to change our minds or to accept new things.

Breathe healing into all those we know

who are finding life hard


Breathe on this sleeping world today.

Burn in us

with an unquenchable fire.

Burn your gospel of peace into the essence of our being

and your gospel of love into the core of who we are

so that we can stand firm against the anger and hate

that bubble and breed in the world around us.

Let your people of peace burn bright in the places where hatred and fear prevail

[we think of…].

Burn in this dark world today.

Speak to us

with your clear and compelling voice.

Speak of love that conquers all

and let your still small voice be our wake-up call.

In a world where thousands of channels and millions of voices

endlessly repeat yesterday’s speculation and conspiracy theory,

let us speak of your all-embracing love

in words and deeds and quiet smiles.

As you brought us out of our dark places

so give us the grace to bring light to the lives of others.

by the power of your Spirit and your name.
