Liturgists

One very meaningful way you may serve God at the Church of the Good Shepherd is through assisting with the Sunday morning liturgy.  Liturgists frequently help lead the congregation in prayer, read Scripture, and assist with the distribution of the bread and cup during Holy Communion.  If you think you might be interested in serving in this way, please contact Rev. Burgess.

Please note the pronunciation tips provided with many of the lessons listed below. Stress accents are printed after stressed syllables:

'+CAPITAL LETTERS= primary stress
' =secondary stress.  

An italicized i is pronounced like the y in sky.

Prayers for Illumination

The following are time-honored and traditional examples of prayers to be offered before the reading of scripture. Please feel free to choose one from among them to use on the Sunday morning you will serve as liturgist.

O God, who has so made us that we live not by bread alone but by every Word of yours: Cause us to hunger after the heavenly food, and to find in it our daily provision on the way to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God who commanded light to shine out of darkness: We pray you to shine into our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of your glory in the face of Jesus Christ; to whom be praise and honor for evermore. Amen.

Heavenly Father, we pray that your Holy Spirit may rest upon us now, as we approach the study of your holy Word, and that he may make that Word a living message to our souls; thorugh Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Lord, uphold me, that I may uplift you; and may the words of my mouth, and the meditation of our hearts, be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our strength and our redeemer. Amen.

Give us grace, O Lord, not only to hear your Word with our ears, but also to receive it into our hearts and to show it forth in our lives; for the glory of your great name. Amen.

O Lord, open to us your Word, and our hearts to your Word, that we may know you better and love you more; for your mercy and for your truth's sake.

Heavenly Father sanctify us by your truth, and grant that the Spirit of truth may guide us into all truth, through him who is the truth incarnate, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
