Prayer: Almighty God, we read in your word how glad your people should be when we go to worship you publicly. Yet, we confess that we are often ambivalent, lacking joy and zeal for your worship. We know that we should be filled with zeal and delight as we gather with your people on the Lord’s Day. We know that our attitudes are due to our fallen nature that hounds us each day. We grieve the reality of our sin and long for the day when we will no longer wrestle with these things. Forgive us, Lord. Please grant to us a holy zeal and joy as we worship you with your people today, we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Scripture Meditation: Ps. 122:1
