One: By the power of God’s Spirit we rise and embrace this day.
Spirit will touch our places of brokenness and we will be healed,
our eyes will open to new possibilities.
All: We come to worship the one who makes us whole,
the one in whose name we serve, the one who gives our work meaning.
Praise be to God.

Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
