Let us worship God together
Mighty and gracious God,
It is with gladness that we gather now in Your presence,
bringing to You the worship of humble, grateful hearts.
We adore You, creator and sustainer of all things,
giver of every good and perfect gift,
for the numberless blessings we have experienced in our lives,
for Your goodness and mercy that have followed us all our days.
God of overflowing generosity, we praise You
for the supreme gift of Your love
in the coming of Your Son, our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ,
and for the God You have shown us to be in Him.
Today we remember with joy the coming of the Spirit
from the risen, ascended Christ at Pentecost,
upon all those gathered:
dispelling their fears,
clearing their vision,
uniting them as one,
equipping them for mission.
Among us here today, and among Your people wherever they are gathered,
may the same Spirit of Pentecost minister grace in these ways to each of us too.
May our hearts and lives be open to the wind of the Spirit,
the giver of life,
that we may be energised to live more faithfully
as members of your coming kingdom
and as joyful witnesses to the good news of Jesus Christ.
In whose strong name we pray.
