Opening Prayer
(based on Psalm 65:1-13)

What mighty praise belongs to You, O God,
for Your acts of love and faithfulness toward us!

In Your mercy You hear our prayers,
You forgive our sins,
You provide for our needs.

From one end of the earth to the other,
You inspire worship and praise!
Even nature celebrates Your goodness.

We, too, would offer our praise and thanksgiving
for Your mercy and Your faithful love toward us.
Receive our adoration,
our confession,
our thanksgiving.

Through the power of Your Holy Spirit
make Your presence known among us
that we may hear Your Word and know Your will.

In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Intercessor, we pray.
Amen.
