COMMUNION PRAYER

Pour out your Holy Spirit on all of us gathered here and on these gifts of bread and wine. Make them be for us the life and love of Christ, that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed and renewed by his love and grace. By your Spirit, lift us up with wings like eagles, that we may know the strength to truly become one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world until Christ comes in final victory, and we feast at the heavenly banquet. Through Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church, all honor and glory is yours, almighty God, now and forevermore. Amen

*CALL TO WORSHIP

If you cry the cry of the broken hearted, your God shall hear and bind you up.

             If we plead the plea of the outcast, our God shall hear and bring us in.

     Together: Let us rejoice, and bind up all wounds; let us rejoice, and bring all the peoples               in! For the world is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof, and we are God’s             

                     people together!

GREAT THANKSGIVING

    The Lord be with you

And also with you.

    Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to the Lord.

 Let us give our thanks to the Lord.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

   It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Almighty God, creator of heaven and earth. You have created the earth and sky, the sea and stars, and all the living creatures therein. Your works are the essence of majesty and honor. Your righteousness lives forever. You demonstrate your power in strange and unexpected ways: from the birth of your Son in a manger, to the gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit calling us to love one another. The works of your hands are faithful and just, and your mercy endures forever. And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven, we praise your name and join their unending hymn.

     Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the one who comes in the name of

the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

  Holy are you, and blessed is your Son, Jesus Christ. Who came to cleanse us from our sins, and to bring us newness of life. In the power of the Holy Spirit, he healed people, and taught as one who had authority. He brought a new teaching – a teaching of love, forgiveness, and the power of God for justice and mercy.
