Trinity 6

Leader:        Grace mercy and peace be with you

All:             and also with you.

 

Leader:        We come from scattered lives to meet with God.

                   Let us recognise his presence with us.

                   A moment of quiet as we call upon God and seek his presence

                   As God’s people we have gathered:

All:             let us worship him together.

 

 

Leader:        The world belongs to God,

All:             The earth and all its people.

 

Leader:        How good it is, how wonderful,

All:             To live together in unity.

 

Leader:        Love and faith come together,

All:             Justice and peace join hands.

 

Leader:        If Christ’s disciples keep silent

All:             These stones would shout aloud.

 

Leader:        Open our lips, O God,

All:             And our mouths shall proclaim your praise.

 

 

Leader:        The peace of the Lord be always with you.

All:             And also with you.

Song

As the deer pants for the water

So my soul longs after you

You alone are my heart’s desire

And I long to worship you.

 

Refrain

You alone are my strength and shield

To you alone may my spirit yield

You alone are my heart’s desire

And I long to worship you

 

I want you more than gold or silver

Only you can satisfy

You alone are the real joy giver

And the apple of my eye.

Refrain

 

You’re my friend and you’re my brother

Even though you are a king

I love you more than any other

So much more than anything.

 

Refrain.

A time for reflection and confession:

 

Leader:        Holy God, maker of all

All:             Have mercy on us.

 

Leader:        Jesus Christ, Servant of the poor

All:             Have mercy on us.

 

Leader:        Holy Spirit, Breath of life

All:             Have mercy on us.

 

silence

 

All:              Before God, with the people of God,

                   We confess to our brokenness:

                   To the ways we wound our lives,

                   The lives of others,

                   And the life of the world.

 

Leader:        May God forgive you, Christ renew you,

                   And the Spirit enable you to grow in love.

All:             Amen.

 

Leader:        Let us pray (collect for 6tht after Trinity)

All: Creator God, you made us all in your image:

May we discern you in all that we see,

And serve you in all that we do;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

 We say the Lord’s Prayer together

                   Our Father in heaven,

                   Hallowed be your name,

                   Your kingdom come,

                   Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,

                   Give us today our daily bread,

                   Forgive us our sins,

                   As we forgive those who sin against us,

                   Save us in the time of trial

                   And deliver us from evil,

                   For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,

                   Now and forever. Amen.

 Song

Give thanks with a grateful heart

Give thanks to the Holy One

Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart

Give thanks to the Holy One

Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son.

And now let the weak say, “I am strong!”

Let the poor say, “I am rich

Because of what the Lord has done for us”.   (Repeat).

(Last time only)

Give thanks.

 

Reading :  Romans 6:1-14 NIV

 

 

Leader:        Be with us Spirit of God.

All:             nothing can separate us from your love.

 

Leader:        Breathe on us, breath of God;

All:             fill us with your saving power.              

 

Leader:        Speak in us, Wisdom of God;

All:             bring strength, healing and peace.

 

 

Reading: Romans 6: 19-23 NIV

Final Song

Refiner’s Fire

Purify my heart

Let me be as gold or precious silver

Purify my heart

Let me be as gold, pure gold

 

Refrain

 

Refiner’s fire

My heart’s one desire

Is to be holy

Set apart for you Lord

I choose to be holy

Set apart for you my master

Ready to do your will

 

Purify my heart

Cleanse me from with-in, and make me holy

Purify my heart

Cleanse me from my sin, deep with-in

 

Refrain
