Opening Prayer: Into Your Presence

Here is a simple but beautiful opening prayer, written by John Birch and posted on his Faith and Worship website.

Opening Prayer

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good
His love endures forever

Into your presence we come, Lord
a few moments of quietness
in a busy world
that demands our attention
Breathe on us now
that we might know your presence
and your power
to see this day though
