(an acrostic prayer)
Glorious God, Father, Spirit and Son, we come to praise You with our worship this day.
Odor us with the fragrance of Your Son, Jesus Christ, Father. May we smell like You as the world comes into contact with us today.
Decorate us with the adornments of Your Spirit, Father. May we be love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control as we live our lives in this world, O God!
Seclude us from the temptations of the evil one, even as we come to worship, that we might see You and revel in Your presence.
Temper us in the fire of Your will and on the anvil of Your word, Father, as we seek You daily.
In Your time, Father, show us the way of righteousness that You have for each of us to walk. May Your time become our time, O God!
Mingle us with those people who need to see, to hear and to smell You as they walk with us daily, Lord. May we be You on exhibit as we live each day!
Equip us in this time of worship to see Your time; where You want us to use it each day; how You want us to allow it to shape us for Your use, and to whom we are to take You, O God!
In the name of the creator of time and all of creation, we pray! Amen!
