Sunday Worship from Home for Ascension, Pentecost and Ordinary Time
O Lord, open our lips,
and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.
Send your Holy Spirit upon us,
and clothe us with power from on high. Alleluia.
You may wish to sing or listen to a spiritual song.
Blessed are you, creator God,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As your Spirit moved over the face of the waters
bringing light and life to your creation,
pour out your spirit on us today
that we may walk as children of light
and by your grace reveal your presence.
Blessed be God, Father and Holy Spirit.
Praise the LORD, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love towards us,
and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.
Praise the LORD.

Offer to God your thanks and praise for all our good gifts. You might like to name them one by one.
Prayers for others and the world might include these concerns:.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low:
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Jesus Christ our Lord.
God of glory,
by the raising of your Son
you have broken the chains of death and hell:
fill your Church with faith and hope;
for a new day has dawned
and the way to life stands open
in our Saviour Jesus Christ.
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 trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory.
For ever and ever.
May the Spirit kindle in us the power of God's love.
Let us bless the Lord. Alleluia, alleluia
Thanks be to God. Alleluia, alleluia.
