Opening Prayer: Psalm 89


Opening Prayer
(based on Psalm 89:1-4, 15-18)

Holy God,
your faithful love toward us never ends!
It is as sure and dependable as the sky over our heads.
We praise You!

We’ve gathered together in this place
to offer you our worship and our thanksgiving;
to declare to any who will listen
that You are our God, and we are Your people.

May Your Spirit be at work among us as we worship,
opening our eyes to the light of Your presence in this place.

To You alone,
    Faithful Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer,
    be all glory and honour,
now and forever.  
Amen.
