Prayer of Adoration and Praise

(inspired by Isaiah 55:1-9)


Gracious and merciful God,

we fill our bodies with rich food and sweet drinks

yet we still hunger and thirst for more—for you.

And so we praise you for taking the initiative

to replenish and renew our lives.

You established a new and everlasting covenant of grace

in the person of Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord.

Through him we seek you and find you, O God. 

Through him we call on you and know that we are heard. 

For, through him,

the distance between your thoughts and our thoughts,

your ways and our ways,

is spanned by your divine love. 

We praise and adore you, O God,

as we offer this prayer

through Jesus Christ our Lord and our Saviour . Amen
