Call to Worship:
Praise the Lord, my soul, and do not forget how kind he is.  He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.                                                                                           Ps.103.2f.
God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.                                                                    Jn.3:16
 
Glory to the Father,
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, it is now,
and will be forevermore!
Amen.
 
Come now, let’s worship our God!
 
Prayer of praise and the forgiveness of our sins:
Father, we are your children; your Son lives in us and we in him.
Hear us, for your Spirit prays through our prayers. Glorify yourself through us in whom the Holy Spirit dwells.
 
Once, on that first Pentecost Sunday, we were baptised with fire when the Holy Spirit was poured onto your people. Hear us Lord, for we too have been filled with your Holy Spirit.
Father, bring glory to your Name, bring glory to the Name of our Saviour and Lord; bring glory to your Name through the powerful work of the Holy Spirit.
 
And yet, almighty eternal God – we have sinned against you in thought, in word, deed and omission - forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us.
Forgive us because we have not done unto others as we want them to do unto us. Forgive us that we have not loved you with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
As we now quietly in our hearts confess our sins – Lord, listen to our prayers!
(Silence)
 
All this we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord,
Amen.
 
Forgiveness of sins:
Thus says the Lord,
‘I have swept away your transgressions like a cloud,
and your sins like mist; return to me, for I have redeemed you. Isa.44:22.
I declare that for the sake of Jesus Christ, you sins are forgiven.
I proclaim this in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Amen.
 
Prayer of Intercession:
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who baptised us with fire when the Holy Spirit was poured onto your people. Hear us Lord, for we too are filled with your Holy Spirit.
Grant us the gifts of the Spirit that we may serve our Saviour Jesus Christ and all his people. Grant us the strength that we may live as people who received the right to be called children of God.
 
On this day of remembrance, we pray for your church throughout the world and particularly in our country and our city, that it may be united in faith and in its witness to your gospel and your perfect will.
We pray for the nations of the world, especially those facing war, famine or any other disaster.
 
We pray for our own country and for our government, that there may be justice, peace and a better life for all in our land.  We pray for the society of which we are part, that all may learn to respect those who are different from them, whether in language or class, and that all may seek the common good.
 
We pray for the poor, the sick, the suffering, the dying, the sorrowful. We pray for all who are anxious, or in doubt, despair or any kind of trouble.
We think about.....
 
We pray that you will hasten that day when at last your home will be with your people, and you will wipe away every tear from their eyes and there will be no more death, no more grief or crying or pain. 
 
You called the disciples to fish for people:
help us all to be your witnesses and to win others for Christ.
 
You inspired the prophets of old: help your Church
to proclaim your gospel and your will faithfully to the world.
 
Lord Jesus ,You forgave the thief on the cross:
bring all people to repentance and reconciliation.
You gave us your peace:
bring the peoples of this world to live in unity and harmony.
 
You sat among the learned, listening and asking questions:
inspire all who teach and all who learn.
 
You were unjustly condemned by Pontius Pilate:
strengthen al who suffer injustice and persecution.
 
Lord Jesus, you were rich, yet for our sake became poor:
move us all to share generously with those who are poor.
 
You lived as an exile in Egypt:
be with all migrant workers and foreigners amongst us, and protect their families.
 
Prepare our hearts, O Lord, to hear your Word. Quieten in us any voice but your own, and grant that by the power of your Spirit we may both hear and believe your gospel and learn to obey your will.
 
Father, bring glory to your Name and to the Name our Saviour and Lord, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray..
Amen.
