CALL TO WORSHIP
Paraphrase of Prayer by Eugene Peterson
Lord we ask, be with us as we continue our lives of serving you. Through our jobs, relationships, and every day. As we find ways to enter into what you are already doing, not us calculating the chances but doing what is right there, what you have already started doing.
Thank you for this day.
Your blessing oh Lord.
Give us your blessing.
In Christ’s name, whose Spirit is with us on this day,
PRAYER FOR WORLD REFUGEE DAY & NATIONAL ABORIGINAL DAY
from you every family in heaven and earth takes its name.
You have rooted and grounded us
in your covenant love,
and empowered us by your Spirit
to speak the truth in love,
and to walk in your way towards justice and wholeness.
Mercifully grant that your people,
journeying together in partnership,
may be strengthened and guided
to help one another to grow into the full stature of Christ,
who is our light and our life.
