(an acrostic prayer)
Lord, God almighty, we come to worship out of a sense of gratitude and loyalty to Your Son, Jesus Christ today.
Open our eyes that we may see You today through the power of Your Spirit present with us, Father.
You are beautiful and deserve our highest praise for Your saving grace offered to us in Your Son, O God!
Allow us to fall before You in adoration and praise as we seek Your forgiveness for our sins and lack of interest in Your things here today, Father.
Lead us to the place that You have prepared for us. May we be loyal to Your purpose for us today and forever, O Lord.
Tighten our grip on Your word, Father. As we study and meditate on You today, may we allow You to sink deep into us, O God.
Your glory, O Father, is what we seek to make known as we gather for worship and as we live our lives daily for You!
Towards You Father, we would run to be in Your presence. We would run and bow down in thanksgiving and praise.
Offering ourselves to You again, we humbly wait before You, Father. Help us to have patience as You have patience with us, O God.
Cover us, Father, with the blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ, to cleanse and to save.
Have mercy on us, Lord, in the deep, deep love of Your grace. Hide us in You today, Father.
Remind us, dear Lord, of Your will for our lives. May we be conscious of You each and every moment You give us to live here.
Instill in us the urgency of Your love for us and with the need to share Your love with others along our paths.
Save us from our disloyalty to Your Son, O Father. We long to be Yours through him, but we sin! Forgive us, Father.
Take our minds, hearts and souls from the distractions and busyness of this world and place them in Your safe shelter, dear God.
We pray in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, with thanksgiving and praise to You. Amen.
