Call to Worship & Prayer: Trinity

Here’s a beautiful call to worship and opening prayer for the second Sunday after Pentecost (Trinity Sunday).  It was written by Rev. Mindi and posted on her Rev-o-lution blog.

Call to Worship

God our Creator,
we call You Father, Mother, Author of Life:
Draw us closer to You, O God.

Christ our Savior,
we call You the Son, the Messiah, the One who Saves:
Draw us closer to You, O God.

Holy Spirit,
we call You the Advocate, the Inspirer, Breath and Wind of God:
Draw us closer to You, O God.

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty;
Heaven and earth are full of Your glory:
Draw us closer to You, O God.

Draw us in, Spirit, Christ and Creator,
that we might journey with You more fully and deeply,
in this life and beyond. Amen.

Opening Prayer

Abba, Father, Mother, Creator–we call You by many names, but the names we choose show our relationship with You. We desire to draw closer to You, O God. We desire to hear Your voice above the chatter of the world, to know Your ways and to walk in them.

Spirit of Life, Wind and Breath among us, we feel You move through us, guiding us on our journey, inspiring us to share Your love with others.

Jesus, the Christ, the Savior of us all, our Brother and Friend, we desire to walk in Your ways and to love one another as You have first loved us.

Triune God, we desire to relate to You and to each other more fully, so that we might draw into the depths of Your love, first glimpsed at creation, when Your voice called us and the earth forth out of darkness into Your light. Continue to call us, guide us and lead us into this world and beyond. Amen.
