Opening Prayer

[Psalm 133]

Lord, we are glad to gather before You.  We pray for the peace of Your people.  For the sake of our brothers and companions, grant us peace in the prince of peace.  We remember on this Lord’s Day that you raised Jesus to new life, and to bring peace between yourself and a rebellious humanity, peace between Jew and Gentile, peace between warring tribes and nations.  You will bring this about in Your good time.  

Show your church how to lead the way.  How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity.  We thank you for the picture of oil in the Bible, running down Aaron’s beard, a symbol of Your healing Holy Spirit flowing down to us.  You’ve given us life, like dew dripping down to sustain us.  Let this worship service be a time of refreshing, we pray.
