(an acrostic prayer)
Jehovah, almighty God, everlasting King, ruler over all and Father to Your children gathered here, we would worship You with all we are in this moment.
Use these precious moments of silence and attention, on our part, to break into our busyness and lay waste the world’s hold over us, O God. Judge us through the blood of Your Son, Jesus!
Develop in us a deep sense of love for You as You look at us through the lens of Your forgiveness, mercy, and grace in Jesus Christ.
Gather us to Yourself, dear Father, as You see us scurrying around with all our plans and perceived importance and hold us in Your arms, less we fall without the possibility of getting up.
Enthuse us by the power of Your Holy Spirit to return to Your path where You are presently walking ahead of, beside of, and with us, dear Father.
Save us from our fears and anxieties of this life, that we may be useful for Your kingdom’s work here in our world today, O God. Judge us by Your love, Father and help us to be more like you to this world today.
In the powerful name of the everlasting judge, even Jesus, we pray. Amen!
