(an acrostic prayer)
Heavenly Father, God of love and power, we bow in worship to praise You today.
Eternal You are, O God! We come here to Your cross of sacrifice to hear You speak to us.
Remove the dross from our ears that we may understand what we hear, here at the cross.
Effuse us with the truth of Your Word today, O God, that we may be able to withstand Satan’s blast.
Accept our plea for forgiveness in this time of worship, O Lord. We have examined ourselves and have come up wanting.
Transform us from sinners along the wide path, to seekers along the narrow path here at the cross.
Take our sacrifice of praise today, dear Lord, as an offering of love and sweet savors to You.
Have mercy on us, Father. We are undone in our sin and we need Your merciful hands to put us back together.
Empty us of this world’s siren calls that we may hear You speak here at the cross today.
Crucified, you were, here at the cross, O God. Help us to allow You to crucify our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Remove the guilt of our sins through the blood of Your Son, Jesus, dear Father. Here at the cross, make us clean.
Open the portals of our hearts that we might receive the over-abundant love You share here at the cross, Father.
Shave the remnants of our sin from our souls, O God, as You make us more like You.
Save us, O God! Here at the cross we come. Save us, O Lord!
In the name of Jesus Christ our savior we pray! Amen!
