Opening Responses

The world belongs to God
How good and how lovely it is
Love and faith come together
If God’s disciples keep silent
God, open our lips

Hymn 198  Let us build a house where love can dwell

Prayer of Approach and Confession [closing with]

Our father in heaven,
Hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come, your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not lead us into temptation
but deliver us from evil;
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
Now and forever, Amen
