Call to Worship
Do not worry about anything the Lord is near.
Come, Let us approach God with prayer and supplication.
Rejoice in the Lord, again, I say rejoice
Come, Holy Spirit, Come!
Prayer of Confession: Jesus, we confess that we are full of anxiety and worry about the lack of peace in the world. You promise peace that is beyond understanding, and we confess that yes! we do not yet understand your peace. How can we grasp some of it. Help us to not just pray for peace but to walk the way of it, and speak the words of it. We want to know God. Send your Holy Spirit to guide us we pray. (Silent Confession). Amen.
Assurance of Pardon: God will guard your hearts and minds, go forth knowing the truth. In Jesus Christ you are forgiven
Hymns: Spirit, Breathe On Me Breath of God, Be Thou My Vision, Spirit Of the Living God, Open My Eyes That I May See
Prayer of Dedication: Let us go into the world full of the Holy Spirit, encouraged and full of the gentleness that God ordains for us. Amen.
With Children: Discuss the word “Advocate”
