Calls To Worship

Holy Spirit

Adapted from Psalm 8

Leader: O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

People:   You have set your glory above the heavens. From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise.

Leader: When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place…

People: Who are we that you are mindful of us?

Leader: Creator of Heaven and Earth, thank You for creating us and loving us in a way that knows no limits.

People: We acknowledge You as Lord and praise You for all of creation.

Leader: Holy Spirit, we welcome You in this time of praise and worship.

People: Please, Lord, shape us and mold us into the disciples of Jesus Christ that You are calling us to be.

Adapted from Psalm 51:10-12

Leader:            Create in us clean hearts, O God, and put new and right spirits within us.

People:          Do not cast us away from your presence, and do not take your Holy Spirit from us.

Leader:            Restore to us the joy of your salvation

People:          and sustain in us a willing spirit.

All:                  Let us worship God!

Adapted from Ezekiel 37:5, 6, 9

This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones:

I will make breath enter you and you will come to life.

I will attach tendons to you

And make flesh come upon you

And cover you with skin.

I will put breath in you,

And you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

Come, breath from the four winds, and breathe.

Adapted from Matthew 12:18-21

Pastor: “Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.

All: I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.

Pastor: He will not quarrel or cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets; a bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not quench, until he brings justice to victory;

All: and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”

Adapted from Acts 1:8

Jesus said, “And you will receive power, 

When the Holy Spirit Comes on you. 

And you will be my witnesses. 

In Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 

Holy Spirit, on this Pentecost Sunday, we claim your power.

Adapted from 1 Corinthians 1:20-22

All of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ. 

It is God who gives us the ability to stand firm. 

God has commissioned us. 

And God has identified us as his own 

By placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts 

As the first installment of everything he will give us.

Adapted from 1 Corinthians 12

Leader:            There are different spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;  and there are different ministries and the same Lord;

People:           Christ is just like the human body—a body is a unit; and all the parts of the body are one body, even though there are many parts.

Leader:            We were all baptized by one Spirit into one body, whether Jew or Greek, or slave or free.

People:           We were all given one Spirit to drink. Come, Holy Spirit!

All:                  Let us worship God!

Adapted from Revelation 4:2, 6, 8-11

Pastor: At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne. And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, and day and night they never cease to say,

All: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”

Pastor: And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

All: “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”

 Adapted from Multiple Scriptures

 Leader:            In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,

                           Darkness was over the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

People:          Centuries before Jesus walked among us,

                       The Spirit of God was promised to him, so that he would bring justice to the nations.

Leader:           Jesus sent the Spirit of truth to teach us and give us peace.

People:         At Pentecost the Spirit came, as the rush of violent wind and tongues of fire. 

All:                 That same Spirit is among us now.  Let us worship God!

A Prayer From Catherine of Siena

O Holy Spirit, come into my heart; 

By your power draw it to yourself, God, 

And give me charity with fear. 

Guard me, Christ, from every evil thought, 

And so warm and enflame me again 

With your most gentle love 

That every suffering may seem light to me. 

My holy Father and my gentle Lord, 

Help me in my every need. 

Christ love! Christ love! 

Remember the promise of the Lord: 

God will pour out the Spirit on all flesh. 

The Spirit helps us in our weakness, 

Interceding with sighs to deep for words. 

The Spirit of God renews the earth. 

Bless the name of the Lord!
