Prayer
One: Come, Lord Jesus, speak to us in parables and rhyme.
Many: For you are an intergenerational Savior.
One: Come, Lord Jesus, let us again hear some old-time religion.
Many: For you are the Savior of all the ages.
One: Come, Lord Jesus, speak quietly to us.
Many: For your Spirit speaks through the wind.
One: Come, Lord Jesus, speak loudly to us.
Many: For your Spirit speaks through the thunder.  Savior of all age groups, languages, and cultures, we await your voice.
One: Lord, we’ve come this morning seeking your presence, but it’s hard to settle in when so many things cloud our minds. Even in Your House, it’s hard to pay attention. We are here trusting that you will get our attention, through some song sung, some witness raised, some scripture unfolded, some gesture offered.
All: Come, Lord Jesus, lift us up by your Holy Spirit. Amen.
