(An Invocation Acrostic)
Almighty Father, who is, and was, and is to come,
Nothing less than ourselves we bring to You as we worship You this hour.
Together we come to meet You and to be in Your presence.
Into this house of worship we have come from the world in which we live,
Coming as individuals, yet as Your children and people,
Intending to hear You as we sing Your praises and read Your word.
Please help us to listen!
Anticipating the stillness we need, and Your desire as we come,
Tether us to You, O God, through Your Son, Jesus Christ.
In-fill us, O Lord, with Your Spirit as we wait before You here.
Overcome our need to be ours instead of Yours.
Never forsake us. You, O Father, have bid us to come and we want to follow. Amen.
The Path Continues…
