Worship resources for Sunday May 31st Pentecost

Opening prayer

Holy God, You poured out your Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost. You empowered and led the disciples out into the world. Holy Spirit be present in this time of worship. May we be empowered to follow you and to go out and make our world a more loving and justice filled place.

Take a few minutes, Reflect on your week. Where did you feel the closeness of God? Where did you feel far from God. In silent prayer, thank God for those times and bring your joys and concerns to our great God. And after you have named those things, spend some time in the stillness listening for God.

Hymn: Oh Worship the King, Oh Glorious Above

Prayer of Confession:

Holy Spirit we come with open hands and hearts. For the times when we have not acted on the gifts that you have given us. Forgive us. For the times we have not reached past our differences and shown your holy love. Forgive us. Spark within us a passion and love for you again Holy Spirit. Lead us in sharing the Gospel, and seeking love and justice in our world. Amen.

*Time of silent confession*
