From me no argument, Lord — I accept
your will — come what may — events
delightful or traumatic. Be done
in me and in the world your way.
Omniscient God, I confess —
my ignorance, my lack of vision,
my limited view, and yes my blindness.
You know, you see, you cause to be.
Submission belongs to me — you love,
you care — you desire, in so many words,
communion, fellowship, connection —
For this, O Lord, come down to save!
Our Father in Heaven, glorify your name this day in us and in our speech and actions.
Save me this day, O Father, that I might live in your presence and serve you, for your pleasure.
Show me, Father, how to pray more for your kingdom.
Open my eyes to needs. Reveal the opportunities to help others, for I am often focused on my own affairs.
Put power in my hands and humility in my heart.
Wash me constantly in the blood of Jesus my Lord.
Breathe in me the desires of the Holy Spirit.
No measure can be taken of your greatness. You explode all our categories of thought and dimension.
Open my ears to your word. Let your blessed strength enter my heart to transform and empower.
Bring your fellowship near. Make the joy of your presence real. Let us as your people live in true communion.
Break out your song of salvation among us.
Father, our fellowship with you is our food. We share in common a love this world cannot know.
We experience the life from the Source of living.
We know the Son who lives in us and walks with us until the end. We suffer with him and for him, for the sake of the Good News and the salvation of many.
We serve the needy and use our gifts for the benefit of the body of Christ.
This is our pleasure and joy and crown. We thank you for this communion.
