Call to Worship

Inspired by Mark 5:21-43

With friends and strangers,

with family and neighbors, we gather:

Come among us, Healing God,

with that love which never ends.

With faith reaching out to touch,

with hearts straining to trust, we hope:

Come among us, Friend of the broken,

with your compassion which makes us whole.

With word and wonder,

with silence and song, we wait:

Come among us, Dryer of our tears,

to lift us to our feet to follow you.

Opening Hymn: I Love to Tell the Story UMH# 156

1. I love to tell the story of unseen things above, of Jesus and his glory, of Jesus and his love. 

I love to tell the story, because I know 'tis true; it satisfies my longings as nothing else can do.


Refrain:
I love to tell the story, 'twill be my theme in glory, to tell the old, old story of Jesus and his love.


2. I love to tell the story; more wonderful it seems than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams. 

I love to tell the story, it did so much for me; and that is just the reason I tell it now to thee. 

[Refrain]


3. I love to tell the story; 'tis pleasant to repeat what seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet. 

I love to tell the story, for some have never heard the message of salvation from God's own holy Word. 

[Refrain]


4. I love to tell the story, for those who know it best seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.

And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song, 'twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long. 

[Refrain]

Prayer for Healing

O Lord, you are indeed the healer of all our ills. We bring to you, Lord, our bodies, minds and spirits hurting and broken by the violence, ills, trauma and cares of a world separated from you. Come to us now with your healing powers.


O God, we ask that you heal us. Give us the strength, health, wisdom and knowledge found only through you. Send your life-giving Spirit so that we may live our lives with courage in the profound peace of your love. Come to us now with your healing powers.


Breathe on me, O God, and make me whole.


O God, we ask that you sustain those who seek to alleviate the pain and suffering of this world. Give strength, courage, wisdom and knowledge to all doctors and orderlies, nurses and clerks, psychiatrists, researchers, and all other medical care givers, volunteers and professionals. Send your life-giving Spirit so that their ministries may bring healing and promote health. Come to us now with your healing powers.


Breathe on me, O God, and make me whole.


Be also with those who work to heal the wounds of societies and nations. Guide, protect and strengthen our lawyers and police, chaplains and pastors, healthcare and social workers, politicians, military, diplomats and all others who work for economic and social reform. Send your life-giving Spirit that they may promote your love and grace, bringing healing to those in conflict and stability to those who are vulnerable. Come to us now with your healing powers.


Breathe on me, O God, and make me whole.


God so loved this world and this people that God sent Christ to suffer and die for us. Accept now that gift. Know that you are forgiven, reconciled, accepted and loved.


Breathe on me, O God, and make me whole.

Amen.

Scripture Lesson: Mark 5:21-43 NRSV

A Girl Restored to Life and a Woman Healed
21 When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered around him; and he was by the sea. 22 Then one of the leaders of the synagogue named Jairus came and, when he saw him, fell at his feet 23 and begged him repeatedly, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live.” 24 So he went with him.

And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. 25 Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. 26 She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” 29 Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, ‘Who touched me?’” 32 He looked all around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”


35 While he was still speaking, some people came from the leader’s house to say, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the teacher any further?” 36 But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the leader of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” 37 He allowed no one to follow him except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James. 38 When they came to the house of the leader of the synagogue, he saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. 39 When he had entered, he said to them, “Why do you make a commotion and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping.” 40 And they laughed at him. Then he put them all outside, and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha cum,” which means, “Little girl, get up!” 42 And immediately the girl got up and began to walk about (she was twelve years of age). At this they were overcome with amazement. 43 He strictly ordered them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

This is a Move

   Mountains are still being moved

Strongholds are still being loosed

God we believe yes we can see it

That wonders are still what You do


Bodies are still being raised

Giants are still being slain

God we believe yes we can see it

That wonders are still what You do


Chorus

We are here for You, Come and do what You do

We are here for You, Come and do what You do

Set our hearts on You, Come and do what you do

'Cause we need a move, We need a move

Miracles happen when you move, Heaven is coming...

Blessing

Go out, among the outcast and the grieving,

and speak the word of life and hope.

Do not fear, but trust in God’s word.

Watch for the Lord with eager expectation,

and be generous with all God has given you.


And may God respond to your every cry with mercy;

May Christ Jesus take you by the hand and lift you to life;

and may the Holy Spirit build you up in faith, in speech,

........in knowledge, in passion and in love.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,

........In the name of Christ. Amen.
