Prayer of Approach: What we need

Here’s a prayer of approach from Bruce Prewer.

Prayer of Approach

Let us pray.

Holy God, joy of the universe,
it is your awesome love that brings us here.
You awaken within us a loving response,
which hungers and thirsts for your truth and beauty.

As we worship you,
please do not give us the blessings we want
but the ones we most need.
Satisfy us with the truth that we may need,
though such truth might be most uncomfortable,
and confront us with your holy beauty
that will often cause us pain before it brings healing.

Through Christ Jesus your joyful Son.
