Opening Prayer
(inspired by Psalm 119:137-144)

Your word is a lamp to our feet,
our guide through the dark,
the wisdom and truth
that we follow each day.
Your word is sweeter than honey,
yet sharper than swords,
is healing and justice
and ours to obey.
Your word is our understanding
of grace, peace and love,
the reason we gather
to worship today
