Heavenly Father, we gather to worship You on this day, when You raised Your Son Jesus Christ from death to life. Lift us out of the death of our trespasses and sins, out of our gloom and apathy, our obsession with lesser things. Let us strain with every nerve of our being to serve You.
We praise you with whole heart, Lord, as David wrote in the Psalm. We do this because You have exalted Your Word above all Your name. Your Son, the living Word, You have given the name above every name. Your Spirit He sent to remind the apostles of what He said and to write them down for future generations.
Lord, let our worship of You be driven by Your Word, guided by Your Spirit, as we draw near to You, the 3 in 1 and 1 in 3, Eternal Father, Spirit, and Word. In this Triune name we pray, Amen.
