*HYMN OF PRAISE “This Is the Day” UMH #657
Lord, you are the One who calls. You call each one of us in
a different way, naming us uniquely beloved in your eyes.
Help us to follow you faithfully, that we may know your
pleasure in us. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

PASTORAL PRAYER AND LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
