Receive us as Your children and please forgive our sinful ways that we might be useful to You as You lead, guide, and direct in this place.
Envision for us Your will that we might be ambassadors for You in this community, state, nation, and even this world.
Enliven us by the power of Your Holy Spirit in order that we may stand the tests of the evil one who tries to lure us into sin and bring destruction where You have given freedom.
Defend Your children in the places where we are especially vulnerable, Father. You know where we need to remember Your freedom is more than just a catchphrase.
Open our minds, ours hearts and our souls to You once again as we sing, pray, hear Your word proclaimed, and respond to You today.
Move us from our self-centered ways into a life that lives in Your freedom; individually, personally and as a family of Your children, dear God.
We pray in the freedom of the name of your Son and our Savior, Jesus, the Christ. Amen!
