“All Creatures of Our God and King”

(verses 1, 3, 5, 7)



God of struggle and blessing, we thank you that you are so willing to meet us in love here and now, as you met our mothers and fathers in faith on their journeys, as you entered our human life in Jesus. Help us open our hearts to you in this time of worship, so that we may grow in love toward you and all people through the gentle wind of your Spirit. 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.
