St Luke's Church in Hedge End

Welcome

Opening Prayer

Almighty God,
send down upon your Church
the riches of your Spirit,
and kindle in all who minister the gospel
your countless gifts of grace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Over All the Earth

Confession

When our hearts and minds are closed to understanding God’s word.
Lord, have mercy.

When listening to God’s word and following Jesus’ teaching become difficult and we turn away.
Christ, have mercy.

When we allow the concerns and worries of our lives to crows out God’s word and peace.
Lord, have mercy. 
Amen.

May the God of love and power
forgive you and free you from your sins,
heal and strengthen you by his Spirit,
and raise you to new life in Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Prayers

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name;
your kingdom come;
your will be done;
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.  Amen.
