*CALL TO WORSHIP        
       With all our heart,
we take refuge in God most high, who reacted all things, the merciful Father, Source of all
goodness.
       With all our heart,
we take refuge in Christ, the Redeemer from sin, who restores our true nature, the perfect
and mysterious Word.
       With all our heart,
we take refuge in the One who embraces the universe who at all times and in all places
responds to our needs the pure and tranquil Holy Spirit. Amen

*HYMN     “O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee” UMH 430

*SPIRIT PRAYER
       
       Almighty and most merciful God, you know the thoughts of our hearts.  We confess
that we have sinned against you and done evil in your sight.  We have transgressed your
holy laws.  We have disregarded your Word and Sacraments.  Forgive us, O Lord.  Give us
grace and power to put away all hurtful things, that, being delivered from the bondage of
sin, we may bring froth fruit worthy of repentance, and from henceforth may ever walk in
your holy ways; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
