Call to worship (Purple songbook #192)

Wind of God, blow far from us
all dark despair, all deep distress
all groundless fears, all sinful desires,
all false values, all selfish wishes. (Silence)

Blow into us your holy presence,
your living love, your healing touch,
your splendid courage, your mighty strength,

your perfect peace, your boundless joy. (Silence)

Wind of the God who loves and forgives us,
blow strong, blow fresh, blow now. AMEN
