CHILDREN’S WORSHIP

OPENING PRAYER

(Constance Cherry, 2011)

Lord of all nations, you hold this fragile world securely in your hands; at the same time you are so personal as to live within each believer through your Spirit. Meet with us this day. Help us to see you in the faces of our brothers and sisters, to hear you in the words of Holy Scripture and to be nourished by you at your table. Convince us of your presence as we worship so that we may be inspired to live our lives for your glory and offer your love to all. Through Christ, our Lord and Savior, we pray. Amen.

READINGS FROM SCRIPTURE

Mark 1: 29-39 New Revised Standard Version
As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and
John. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once. He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them. That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons. And the whole city was gathered around the door.
