Worship Prayer

Almighty God we welcome you to this place.
We give thanks for your presence here among us.
We desire to worship you O God.
We want to give you all the glory, honor, and praise you deserve.
We come today with open hearts—may you fill us with your spirit and make us whole.
We come to you with open ears that you might teach us and speak to us through your Word.
We enter into this sanctuary—your home with burdens and concerns of our own,
Please God hear our hearts, listen to our worries and our frustrations. Hear our laments.
God of all nations, be with all people everywhere who honor you and worship you this day.
Remind us that through holy communion we are intimately connected to you and to all our brothers and sisters around the world.
Let us be healed this day.
Let us be made new this day.
Let us be transformed this day.
We pray all of these things in the name of your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
