(an acrostic prayer)
To You, O Lord, we come in repentance and adoration to worship and adore You. We want to be in Your presence as we come aside today.
Hear our pleas, O God, as we humble ourselves before You and ask for forgiveness and cleansing today.
Enter into this time and place and interrupt our routines and the usualness of our plans and teach us to worship, Father.
Break down the barriers we have built up to keep ourselves from really seeing You and the good works you have ordained for us to do in this place and community, O God.
Reveal Yourself in Your Word, Father, and cause us to be filled with You as we listen and read and wait on Your Spirit in worship.
Envision in us who You are and who You want us to become as we seek You each day that we live.
Allow Your Holy Spirit to fill us with the needed wisdom, knowledge, humility, and love to do Your will among us, dear Father.
Defenseless we come as we confess our prideful sins before You this hour, Father. We ask for mercy, O Lord.
Open the eyes of our hearts, Lord, that we may indeed see You as You speak from Your Word and as You bid us to come and dine with You.
Forever we seek to be filled with You as the bread of life, O Lord. We know we need all of You in all of us.
Look upon us as Your children, Father, and mold us into Your hands, Your feet, and Your voice that we may share the bread of life with this world.
Infuse us with Your power by the Holy Spirit that we may be known as Your people living in the way we should as we follow Your words and way.
Fuse us with Your Spirit to the pathway that You lead us into and give us the wherewithal to be Your servants to be used by You to bring others to Yourself.
