(an acrostic prayer)
Out of the abundance of Your grace, dear God, we come to worship You as the only true, great God!
Under Your mercy and in Your love, we strive to live our lives as Your children.
Remove our sin and stain of guilt as only the one, true, great God can, dear Father.
Grow within us the abundant life You promised as we received Your Holy Spirit in repentance and in forgiveness.
Receive us as we come, again, to acknowledge that You are God and we are not. Help us to live in that knowledge, a life of humility, O God.
Enter into our very beings to reveal Yourself as the great God who loves and forgives, O Father.
Accept our repentance of sins, even today, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness for Your name’s sake, dear Father.
Teach us how Your greatness is to be shown to this world through us, O Lord.
Guide us, dear Lord, in the power of Your Holy Spirit, to see Your greatness and to live in Your grace.
Open us to the path You have walked for us that we may walk it gladly with You, dear God.
Descend upon us, O Lord, by Your Spirit, that we may be more like You for having worshipped in this time and this place.
In the great name of the only great God, we pray. Amen!
