Short Opening Prayer at the Beginning of a Service

Lord God, who by your love has brought us here today, make your presence known in us and amongst us. Speak to our hearts in ever new and transforming ways, full of power and grace. We stand before you, ready to be filled with your Holy Spirit, ready to be used as vessels for your work, each in our own unique way. We bring before you ourselves, with all we are and all we have, use us for the glory of your name and the coming of your kingdom. We ask you this in Jesus' name.

Prayer for Grace

Father God,
We thirst and hunger for grace, yet so many times our words, actions and attitudes are anything but gracious. We live in the age of grace, yet we are surrounded by news of violence, lack of caring and unforgiveness.
So often we find it hard to break the vicious circles of ungrace we get caught in. We prefer to follow the way of this world rather than your way. Forgive us, Father.
We come to you as to our only source of hope and light in a world so full of darkness and despair. Help us to live gracious lives. Help us to be an example to those who don't know you and an instrument of your love.
We surrender to you our hearts and minds, all we have and do and all we are, let your Holy Spirit live in us and carry on the revolution of grace started on this earth by your son Jesus Christ.
And let your blessings be with us today, and with all those we love, and all those in need of your love.
In Jesus' name we pray.
