Prayer of Praise to the Triune God

We have heard about you, God of all power. 
You made the world out of kindness, 
creating order out of confusion; 
You made each one of us in your own image; 
Your fingerprint is on every soul. 
So we praise you. 
We praise and worship you.

We have heard about you, Jesus Christ: 
the carpenter who left his tools and trade; 
the poor man who made others rich; 
the healer who let himself be wounded; 
the criminal on whom the soldiers spat 
not knowing they were fouling the face of God; 
the saviour who died and rose again. 
So we praise you. 
We praise and worship you.

We have heard about you, Holy Spirit. 
You broke the bonds of every race and nation, 
to let God speak in every tongue; 
You made disciples drunk with grace; 
You converted souls and emptied pockets; 
You showed how love made all things new 
and opened the doors to change and freedom. 
So we praise you. 
We praise and worship you.
