    CALL TO WORSHIP  - based on Luke 11:9
     
    L: Lord, as we search now, let us find you.
    P: As we knock, open the door to us.
    L: Let us know you, that we may praise you;
    P: and love you, that we may serve you.
    L: The Lord is your light and your salvation.
    P: Even though everything around us is disturbing, yet God’s love is constant.
    Thanks be to God. AMEN.
     
    OPENING PRAYER                                                #412
    Prayer of John Chrysostom
     
    Almighty God,
    You have given us grace at this time with one accord
         to make our common supplications to You;
    And You have promised through your well-beloved Son
          that when two or three are gathered together in
          His name, You will be in the midst of them.
    Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions
        As may be best for us;
    Granting us in this world knowledge of Your truth,
       And in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.
