+Call to Worship                                                                       

Leader: May the glory of the LORD endure forever;

People: may the LORD rejoice in his works—

Leader: who looks on the earth and it trembles,

People: who touches the mountains and they smoke.

Leader: I will sing to the LORD as long as I live;

People: I will sing praise to my God while I have being.

Leader: May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the LORD.

ALL: Bless the LORD, O my soul. Praise the LORD!


O God of wind and fire, who has given your Holy Spirit to indwell the lives of men and women of faith, as that band of believers gathered in an upper room that first day of Pentecost to await your presence, so we gather in hope and anticipation to seek your face.  Even as your Spirit was poured out upon that company of disciples, so we pray that your Spirit might be poured out upon us.  Let your Spirit sweep through our midst, lifting us above the mundane and familiar, and carry us into bold and adventurous realms of faith.  Anoint us with your power, that we might go forth possessed of a new purpose and perspective, and that we might be transformed into mighty witnesses to your love and majesty.  Let the spirit of Christ, who gave himself for us, empower us to give ourselves for others, even as we pray in his blessed name.  Amen.
