CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
People: And also with you.
Leader: Depend upon God to grant your heart’s desire.
People: We will commit our lives to Christ and trust the Spirit to do what is beyond our doing.
PRAYER OF INVOCATION
God on high, we bow before you humbly but we cannot claim to always love kindness and do justice. Though we aspire to achieve this perfection, we can now offer only the advocacy of Jesus who has achieved such sinlessness before you. Continue the work of the Spirit in our transformation for your name’s sake. Amen.
