(an acrostic prayer)
Eternal God, loving Father, and comforting Spirit, we come to worship You and to thank You for Your eternal mercies shed on us today.
Touched by Your loving kindness through the life of Your Son among us, we praise You for Your eternal mercies given to us through him.
Enter into our worship and praise to receive glory through us Your children and to hear us as we pray in Your spirit’s mercies.
Renew our mind as we live in Your grace. May we show Your eternal mercies to each we meet, dear God. May Your mercies through us beget more children for You.
Newness of spirit, O Father, we seek Your newness of spirit. May our spirit of grace and mercy reflect Your perfect love to this world.
Accept us, once again, dear Father. May Your eternal mercies overshadow our guilt and shame as we come to worship You today.
Lift us from the miry environs that we find ourselves in, Father. May Your mercy and grace wash us clean in Your presence today.
Make us one, Father God, with You and with Your children everywhere on this earth. May we seek Your presence in the presence of Your children.
Explore our hearts, our minds, our very souls, as we surrender them to You in this worship time, O Lord. We pray for more mercy and grace today.
Remove the scale of hardness from our hearts, O Lord. May we be pliable in Your hands of mercy today.
Come quickly, dear Father. We need Your mercy for our world today. May we be more of what You want us to become for having been here today.
Instill in us as sense of urgency even in the midst of Your eternal mercies, Father. May we sense You telling us to go to our world today.
Enlighten our darkened minds and hearts with the truth of Your word and with Your presence through Your mercies again today, O God.
Save us, Lord! In the midst of this sinful world, we cry out for Your continued eternal mercies, O God!
In the name of the one who showed us Your mercy, Father, even Jesus Your Son, we pray. Amen!
