Worship at Home Service for Deliverance from the Coronavirus
The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
June 20, 2021
"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst of them"
MATTHEW 18: 31-46
These are extraordinary times. Though we are unable to gather together for worship this morning due to the precautions surrounding COVID-19, we still have an opportunity to worship at home, and as we each do so, we do so together, united in spirit as we seek God together.
A great prophet has arisen among us! God has visited his people!
Luke 7: 16
Gathering the Community
Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Collect for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
O God our defender, storms rage about us and cause us to be afraid. Rescue your people from despair, deliver your sons and daughters from fear, and preserve us all from unbelief; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
