We Humble Ourselves

We humble ourselves before You, God.
 
Before we make any requests, let us be thankful for what we have and Who we have.
 
The things of this world cannot compare to the gifts You bring us.
 
Help us continue to be faithful to You in our words and actions.
 
Help us become a church against which no evil can stand. 
 
As we hear from Your life-giving Word, empty us of ourselves and fill us with more of You.


Turn Us Towards the Cross

Oh God,
 
Help us turn our ways towards the cross.
Help us see any error in our actions and correct them.
Help us remember that You are eternal. That You are infinite and our future lies in that eternity with You in heaven.
 
So let us not become shackled down with the worries and cares of this world. Holy Spirit come and give us that timeless peace that comes from the throne and help us not to worry about anything but instead take courage for You are always with us. And thank You for the joys of being in friendship with You and each other.
 
You deserve all our praise.
 
In Jesus’s name, Amen.


Our Only Hope

You are our only hope. There is nothing and no one who can save us but You. Be our rock today. Be our shelter and safety. Be our assurance when everything else caves under us. Guide us in our worship and let our focus not stray from Jesus.

Humble us when we are filled with spiritual pride. Let us not get in the way of the work You’re trying to accomplish.

Holy Spirit, give us extra grace today.

In Jesus’ name.

Amen
