*Invocation An Invitation to the Holy Spirit (UMH 335)

O God, the Holy Spirit, come to us, and among us;
come as the wind, and cleanse us; come as the fire, and burn;
come as the dew, and refresh;
convict, convert, and consecrate many hearts and lives to our great good
and to thy greater glory; and this we ask for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

Prayers of the People

Prayer Response Sweet, Sweet Spirit UMH 334
There's a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place,
and I know that it's the Spirit of the Lord;
there are sweet expressions on each face,
and I know they feel the presence of the Lord.
Sweet Holy Spirit, sweet heavenly Dove,
stay right here with us, filling us with your love;
and for these blessings we lift our hearts in praise;
without a doubt we'll know that we have been revived
when we shall leave this place.

*Prayer of Thanksgiving

O God it is by your righteousness that we are made righteous, it is by your holiness that we can be holy. It is only as we become one with you that our thinking and our lives become like Jesus' life. Thank you that you make that possible for us by the power of your word and Holy Spirit. We ask now that you bless these gifts and offerings which we return to you that they may be a blessing in the world. We pray Lord that they may be used not just to keep the doors of the church open, but to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked and to fulfill your commission to go into all the world. Amen. .

Passages for Lectio Divina:

When the Counselor comes, whom I willl send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me. And you also must testify. . .Jesus in John 15:26-27a

Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24-25 NRSV

Likewise the Spirit help us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:27-28
