Opening Prayer: New Creation

Here’s an opening prayer from the My Redeemer Lives website.

Opening Prayer
(inspired by 2 Corinthians 5: 6-17)

Creator and Ruler of the Earth,
we lift up our voices, our eyes, our hearts,
our lives to You in praise.
Make us Your alleluia people.
Uphold the weary,
for whom praise may be very difficult.
Humble the strong, for whom "alleluia" may be too easy.

Creator and Ruler of the Earth,
continue to form us into Your new creation,
that we might welcome You to more fully become
 the ruler of our hearts and minds.

Through Him who came as a servant,
and who now reigns over all creation,
Jesus, our Christ. Amen.
