Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father,
You call us to make a joyful noise, to worship You with gladness, to come into your presence with singing, and we have made a beginning. We stand amid worshipers and we praise Your name together.  As You command us to enter Your gates with thanksgiving, we pray You would grant what you command.  Give us gratitude with which to glorify You.  We look to you to feed us by Your Word, Your Spirit, and Your sacraments.  Let us fulfill our vows to You, prayers of confession or requests we’ve made to You throughout this week, bringing you an offering.  Remind us of Your great and holy name, as we hear You speak in Your Word, as we sing and pray to You.

Gracious Father, we approach You in the Lord Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, who lives and reign with You, one God without beginning or end - Amen.
