Sunday Worship from Home for Ordinary Time
O Lord, open our lips,
and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.
O God, make speed to save us,
O Lord, make haste to help us.
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.

for they will be called children of God.
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:
Support us, O Lord,
all the day long of this life, with all its joys and sorrows,
until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes,
the busy world is hushed,
the fever of life is over and our work is done.
Then, Lord, in your mercy
grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at the last;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
who sent your Holy Spirit
to be the light and life of your Church:
open our hearts to the riches of your grace,
that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit
in love and joy and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord
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 risen Christ give us his peace.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
