Opening Prayer: Psalm 85

O Lord, be gracious to us.
Look upon your people with mercy.
Forgive our sin.
Bring us back again,
as you have done before.

Speak your word to us—
a word of peace to those who follow faithfully. 
For we know, without doubt, that Your salvation is near;
your glory fills this place.

Let your unfailing love and truth come together among us;
let your righteousness and peace surround us.
Pour out your goodness upon us,
that we may worship and serve you all our days.
