Prayer: Grant, almighty God, that you would call your redeemed people into your presence today and bless them with your Word as we gather to bless and praise your great and glorious name. You are our God, and we are your people, the sheep of your pasture. We depend on you, knowing that every good and perfect gift comes from you. Please help us bless you and praise you and ask that you would bring us bring to remember all the benefits you graciously give to us. We thank you for this one day in seven that reminds us of the hope of the New Heavens and the New Earth. We ask and plead that you would cause us to bring to remembrance the many ways you care for us and proper us. Your son, who was rich, yet for our sakes, became poor, has secured our eternal salvation through his labor in keeping all of your holy demands. Yet, we fall short and are ashamed of how easy we wander from your precepts. We often forget how you have graciously rescued us from a life of sin and misery. Too often we clamor for and settle on things that will never satisfy our weary souls. Therefore, we pray and ask that you would help us and guide us and strengthen us to love you with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
