Opening Prayer: Isaiah 55: 1-9

Here’s a responsive (or unison) opening prayer inspired by Isaiah 55: 1-9.  It comes from the Lectionary Sermon Archives. 

Opening Prayer
(inspired by Isaiah 55:1-9)

We gather today, O Lord of Life, seeking fullness.
Not the fullness our world offers, but fullness that comes from You.
We spend so much of our lives on things that do not count.
Things that promise much and give little.
Help us now... today, to find fulfillment in Your love,
May we discover all you have to give,
And seek You while we yet have the gift of days.
Lift us O God, to a higher plane of living,
as we lift our hearts and minds and souls into Your Holy presence.
Amen! Make it so Lord! Amen!
