Almighty God, loving Father, and comforting Spirit, we come to worship You in spirit and in truth this morning as we gather as Your children.
Lead us into Your very presence today, Father, as we study YOU, the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, our everything.
Place us in the very middle of Your will that we may do the good works that You had planned for us in the very beginning of creation, O God.
Help us to hear You speak to us today from Your Holy Word that we may be made new and clean in Your sight, Holy Father.
Allow Your Spirit to dwell in us with power to clean, comfort to care, and wisdom to guide us into Your everlasting kingdom.
Attune our minds, our hearts, our spirits to Your voice, Father. Help us to be distinctive as we live for You. May others see You living in and through us this day and in the future days that You may give.
Nurture us with Your Word, dear Father. Help us to know You more as we study Your Word together today. May we be more like You for having gathered here as Your children today.
Delight Yourself, O Lord, in Your people as they seek You today in prayer, in song, in proclamation, and in silence.
Open the windows of heaven today, O Lord, and listen to Your children praising You and lifting songs of thanksgiving to You as they worship You.
Move us from our self-imposed darkness to the light of living in and for You, Father, not only in our worship, but also as we live in You, the beginning and the ending of everything.
Enter into our thoughts and our actions as we live. Help us to live as though it makes a difference that we know You, Father.
Give us grace to love You more, to live for You more, to give as we have received, to love others as You love us and to go as You have commanded us to share You with this world, dear Father.
Accept our prayer this hour, Father. Make us acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, our Redeemer, our Alpha, and our Omega.
It is in the name of the only Alpha and Omega, even Jesus Christ, we pray! Amen and Amen!
Today in the beauty of Your holiness we come to bow down and worship, dear God and Father of mankind.
Hear our pleas for forgiveness and cleansing as we seek to be more like You today in this hour and in the hours ahead of us, O Lord.
Enter into our very beings with the power of Your Holy Spirit and reveal to us Your will as we worship and praise You, Father.
Take us from our self reliant prideful ways into Your Holy and Righteous ways that we may show You to our world, O God!
Remake us in Your image of worthiness that we might be able to stay in You and feed from You today.
Undo the stains that our sin has left on our witness for You and make us useful vessels in Your kingdom’s work here.
Even today, the day we come together to worship, O God, is a day of praise and celebration as we offer ourselves again to You.
Validate Your love in us by helping us to show Your love to the weary world in which we live today, O God.
Illiterate we are at time of what Your Word means to our lives, please interpret to us, Your children, in the power of Your Holy Spirit, we pray.
Nudge us along today, Father, as You have nudged Your people in times past to become more of you and less of us on this very day.
Enough of us, more of You is what we seek as we worship You today, Father. We want to abide in You and to love You more for having been in this place today. Send us forth to be Your power in this world today.
In the name of the “true vine” we pray today, even in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
