(an acrostic prayer)
Precious Lord, Father of us all, we come in worship to praise You and to give our thanksgiving to You in this place.
Repair our sinful minds and hearts that have been broken by the sins and temptations of this world, O Father.
Allow us to bow in Your presence and to bring praise to You, such as we can, even as we ask forgiveness for the sin in our lives and the lack of realizing that You are the only true God and we are not.
Inspire our minds to remember who You are and what You have already done for us through Your Son, Jesus Christ and in Your Spirit’s leading and comfort in our lives each day.
Send us to this world to be Your incarnation, Your skin, Your witness and Your love, dear Father. We praise Your loving mercy among us, O Lord.
Enclose us in Your mighty grasp and hold us firm, even as we struggle to get loose, Father. Bring us once again into Your close embrace.
Yearning to be more like You and less like us, we want to praise You more, love You more, and show You more, O God!
Offering You praise, Father, is our worship today. Accept this as just a small part of our offering of a sacrifice of praise in Your presence.
Use us, Lord, to witness to this world through our offering of praise to You. May our praise lead to a life lived in You when we leave this place, Father!
In praise to You, O God, we pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Your son. Amen!
