God of waiting
Help us to wait on your coming
As we come into this time of worship
We will wait on the Spirit’s prompting and call
Come Lord Jesus come
Jesus as you walked along the lake,
the shore of people’s lives you called.
May we respond.
Jesus you called others to bring people to your message
May we likewise bring others to your message.
Jesus you call us to worship together.
May we with one heart
and one voice worship you.
Creator God you call us into being,
And our mouths proclaim your praise.
Redeemer God you save us and show the way,
And we follow in your path.
Enabling God you give us life,
And we continue to acknowledge your presence and open ourselves to your work.
Come let us worship God with all our life,
Together we join in the praise of God
Person 1 I runga I te Ingoa o te Atua, o te Matua,
O te Tama me te Wairua Tapu. Amine
Person 2 The Lord is here.
God’s Spirit is with us.
Person 3 Encircle this dwelling place with your protection, O God;
may your holy angels encompass these walls,
and peace be within them.
Person 4 Indwelling God, you are ever welcome in this house.
May we hear and share your Word.
Person 1 Above everything, love one another fervently,
for love covers many sins.
Person 2 May this place be for you a place where
Person 3 quarrels are made up,
Person 4 and strength renewed.
