Lord's Prayer Litany

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.

Mystery beyond our knowing,
close to us as our breathing,
in humble awe we pray.

Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven

We pray for your vision of justice and mercy
to be made real in our world even now.

Give us today our daily bread.

We pray for your vision of enough;
enough sustenance, enough warmth, enough healing
for all of your children.

Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

We pray for the grace to let go of that which is death dealing
as we embrace your vision for life,
that we might follow you safely through the obstacle course.

For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours.
Now and for ever.

Giving thanks for presence that defies definition
in this life and beyond.

Amen.

Amen.

Call to Worship

Your people come from many places with different stories to tell;
Show us your steadfast love, O Lord.

Your people come weighed down with their unique bundle of burdens;
Restore us again, O God.

Your people come ready to hear your word proclaimed anew;
Revive us again, so that we may rejoice in You.
