Here’s an opening prayer of invocation from the My Redeemer Lives website.
In Your gentleness,
In Your power,
In Your lowliness,
strip from us our selfish pride
which only destroys us.
In Your greatness,
lift us up that we might aspire to greater things.
As a shepherd,
call us to be Your servants.
As a King,
call us to be Your royal priesthood.
who is our shepherd and our King;
who was crucified and is now risen from the dead;
who comforts and empowers;
O great One in Three, Holy Trinity,
this hour, set us free to worship. Amen.
