Call to Worship:
Jesus prayed to God asking that Jesus might be within us just as God was within Jesus, so that we may become completely one with God. In our worship today let us meet with the God within us, who is waiting to welcome us.
Invitation to Confession:
Jesus, sometimes we act as though you are not within us. Lord, have mercy.
Jesus, sometimes we refuse to look deep within ourselves and so can't find you. Christ, have mercy.
Jesus, sometimes we prefer to be at odds with you rather than to be at one with you. Lord, have mercy.
Jesus had enormous power in all sorts of ways because he was at one with God, so that God's power worked through Jesus. In today's reading he prayed that we too might be one with the God within us.
