Opening Prayer: Psalm 145

 Opening Prayer
(based on Psalm 145:8-14)

Merciful God,
we gather together to offer You our praise and thanksgiving
for the unfailing love You have shown toward us,
generation after generation,
and for the compassion You shower upon us,
day after day.

You alone are our God.  We are Your people.

We pray that Your Holy Spirit would move among us as we worship.
Open our hearts and our minds to see You at work among us,
encouraging, challenging, uplifting, and inspiring,
as each one has need.
May our worship bring honour and glory to You.

In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray.
