Heavenly Father, You have called us up to Your presence. We are in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, standing before Your throne. Your Word tells us that Your Spirit is before Your throne as well, and this is no accident, since we know He dwells within us. We call upon You, Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, to reveal Yourself to us today. In Your majesty let us adore You. In your holiness let us confess to you. In Your truth, let us hear and be taught by you. In your Spirit let us enjoy and commune with you. In your zeal for your name may we go forth to glorify and serve you in the world. We thank you that as Peter wrote, we are elect by the Father’s foreknowledge, sanctified by the Spirit, and sprinkled clean for obedience in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We come to you through Jesus Christ, by the power of Your Holy Spirit who lives and reigns with You, one God without beginning or end. Amen.
