Prayer: Our Father in heaven, we thank you and praise you for your eternal wisdom in giving to us one day in seven in which you call us away from our normal work and recreation to gather as your people to worship you and enjoy fellowship with our brothers and sisters. We confess to you that we often fail to seize the privilege and blessing of the Lord’s Day knowing that it is because we are still worldly-minded setting our thoughts on this earth and life instead of that which you have prepared for us. Forgive us, Father. Please help us to see the beauty of this day and benefit from it as we gather to adore you. Please speak to us today in the preaching of your Word. Please bless us with your presence and teach us your ways we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
