(an acrostic prayer)
Overseeing Father, infinite supplier of grace and mercy, we come to Thank You for saving us through the blood of Your Son, Jesus.
Hear our prayer of grateful love and appreciation as we come to worship You today.
Take us from where we are to where You want us to be in Your grace, O Father of us all.
Help us to be so aware of You that we do not accept this world’s presence as our authority, but live to please You!
Erase the stain of our sin as You remake us, in this place, and in the world where You have called us to live.
Blot out the stains of the sins that easily beset us, Lord! Though our sins be scarlet, make us white as snow, Father.
Lead us into repentance of our sins by the hearing of Your word, in the guidance of Your Holy Spirit!
Open us to Your refining process, ever how painful, Father, that we may be useful for Your kingdom’s work.
Overflow us with Your cleansing water of grace and mercy and Your joy and forgiveness.
Deliver us from the evil one today, O God. May we not be lead into temptation, as we live and breathe and have our being, for Your name’s sake.
Overspread the path You have for each of us with the light of Your presence as we stumble along in our light.
For You, our souls long, dear Jesus. We thank You for giving Yourself that we might live.
Justified by You, Father, help us to live as we are Yours. May our pride be overshadowed by Your life shining through us.
Enthuse us with the joy of Your Spirit living in us so that this world may want to know why we are different and we can tell them.
Send us people in our paths who need to know You, Father, and shine Your Spirit on them through us.
Unify us in one accord; to tell the world about Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Savior.
“Sing my soul, and tell all He’s done, ‘til the earth and heavens are filled with His glory!”1
In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen!
