Leader: Come to the Eternal One, who will keep you from all evil and preserve your life.

 

People: God will keep our going out and our coming in from this time on and forevermore.    

 

PRAYER OF INVOCATION

 

We are drawn to worship you, God of Creation, by the mystery of your power to bring into existence what did not exist. We could be too awestruck to approach you except that the gospel of Jesus Christ assures us of your loving acceptance of our humble homage in faith and in penitence for our sins. Amen.
