Opening prayer before worship
(suitable for the leader of a meeting to pray before a hymn or time of congregational praise or worship)
Lord, today we recall your faithfulness.
Thank you that you walk with us everyday, that you are with us in each moment.
Thank you that your promises are true and your goodness never fails us.
In this moment we come to you and we lay our lives before you.
May we worship and adore you with every fibre of our being.
May everything within us cry "Holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come".
And so today we join with all those who worship and confess you as Lord, from generations past and present, and with all the angels that sing in heaven of your greatness and beauty.
Lord we adore you.
Lord we love you.
Lord you are so precious to us.
n.b. This prayer is inspired by the prophet Isaiah's vision of worshiping angels recorded in Isaiah 6:3 and witnessed again by the writer of Revelation.
