  • Thematic
  • Holy God,
    you spoke the world into being.
    Pour your Spirit to the ends of the earth,
    that your children may return from exile
    as citizens of your commonwealth,
    and our divisions may be healed
    by your word of love and righteousness. Amen.
  • Intercessory
  • Empowering God,
    you gave the church
    the abiding presence of your Holy Spirit.
    Look upon your church today and hear our petitions.

    Prayers of the People, concluding with:

    Grant that, gathered and directed by your Spirit,
    we may confess Christ as Lord
    and combine our diverse gifts with a singular passion
    to continue his mission in this world
    until we join in your eternal praise. Amen.
  • Scripture
  • Living God,
    you have created all that is.
    Send forth your Spirit to renew and restore us,
    that we may proclaim your good news
    in ways and words
    that all will understand and believe. Amen.
