O Breath of Life, come sweeping through us 1 O Breath of Life, come sweeping through us, revive Your Church with life and power; O Breath of Life, come, cleanse, renew us and fit Your Church to meet this hour. 2 O Breath of Love, come breathe within us, renewing thought and will and heart; come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us, revive Your Church in every part! 3 O Wind of God, come bend us, break us till humbly we confess our need; then, in Your tenderness remake us, revive, restore – for this we plead. 4 Revive us, Lord; is zeal abating while harvest fields are vast and white? Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting – equip Thy Church to spread the light. Prayer Bible reading : John 3 7-11, Matthew: 6 1-4 Talk 1 - it’s good to share The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want 1 The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want. He makes me lie in pastures green. He leads me by the still, still waters, His goodness restores my soul. And I will trust in You alone, and I will trust in You alone, for Your endless mercy follows me, Your goodness will lead me home. DESCANT I will trust, I will trust in You. I will trust, I will trust in You. Endless mercy follows me, goodness will lead me home. 2 He guides my ways in righteousness, and He anoints my head with oil, and my cup, it overflows with joy, I feast on His pure delights. And I will trust . . . And though I walk the darkest path, I will not fear the evil one, for You are with me, and Your rod and staff are the comfort I need to know. And I will trust . . .

Be Thou my battle-shield, sword for the fight, be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight. Thou my soul’s shelter and Thou my high tower: raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power. Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise, Thou mine inheritance, now and always: Thou and Thou only the first in my heart, High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art. High King of heaven, after victory won, may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun! Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, still be my vision, O ruler of all.

Prayer for others We’ll walk the land 1 We’ll walk the land with hearts on fire; and every step will be a prayer. Hope is rising, new day dawning; sound of singing fills the air. 2 Two thousand years, and still the flame is burning bright across the land. Hearts are waiting, longing, aching, for awakening once again. Let the flame burn brighter in the heart of the darkness, turning night to glorious day. Let the song grow louder, as our love grows stronger; let it shine! let it shine! We’ll walk for truth, speak out for love; in Jesus’ name we shall be strong, to lift the fallen, to save the children, to fill the nation with Your song. Let the flame . . .
