We commend oursevles to You
Carry our burdens and grant us rest
Take our fears that we may dwell in peace
May we trust in Your power and sincere love
May we trust that You will not abandon us
Open wide our hearts to receive your grace
That our hearts would be free to sing Your praises
1 Samuel 17:32-49
2 Corinthians 6:1-13
Almighty God, who hears the voices of His people, answer as we call upon You today. Defend us from all our enemies and protect us from those who desire discord in Your church. Send Your Holy Spirit on us that we would be strengthened in our desire to do Your will. Remember Your people Lord and accept our prayers. Grant us mercy in our failings and prosper all our works done in Your name.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen.
Heavenly Father, [without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy*BCP], Grant Your people courage in proclaiming Your word and confidence in it’s truth. May we come before You in boldness, and desire to live according to Your will.
O Lord, bless Your church with unity, that Your house would not be divided. May we be gentle with one another and avoid disputes of insignifigance. May we seek those who are likeminded in the love of Your word, that Your church might grow in and strength.
Almighty God, by Your power grant Your church endurance during affliction and faith amid doubt, that we might receive the eternal weight of Your glory.
Lord we ask that You would call our hearts to Yours. Return our thoughts always to Your greatness and mercy and let us never tire of serving You.
We ask all these things through Jesus Christ our Lord.
