Call to Worship:

Hymn:  VU# 213 “Rejoice the Lord is King”

Prayer of Approach:  (Unison)

Mighty and Tender God,

         Voice of the voiceless,

         Power of the powerless,

We praise you for your vision

         Of a community of wholeness

         A realm of peace,

In which all who hunger and thirst are nourished,

In which the stranger is welcomed,

         The hurting are healed,

         and the captive set free.

Guide us by your truth and love

         Until we and all your people

         Make manifest your reign of justice and

          compassion

We pray in the name of your annointed one, our servant king,

         To whom with you and the Spirit, one Holy God,

         Be honour,  glory and blessing

         This day and forever.       AMEN
