Preparing for the Sabbath. A time to sit and meditate in God's presence. Take time today to read the scriptures for Sunday. Not only read them but let the words come alive in your heart and mind. Meditating on scripture makes the Word of God come alive.
Prayer for preparing our hearts for worship.....
Great and Awesome God, we bow down before You this day in joy and awe. We loudly proclaim that we adore You and worship You. We remember this day those who are leading worship tomorrow and those who are sitting in the pews tomorrow worshipping You. Be with each of us as we prepare to worship You! Uphold us in our work and laughter this day so that we can come before You tomorrow in adoration ahd praise. For those who work this day O Lord, provide them with a time to meditate upon Your words. For those who are ill this day, O Lord, provide them with Your comfort. For those who are doing Saturday chores, O Lord, provide them with Your delight in doing everything in Your presence. Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal One grant us peace of hearts, wisdom of minds, and joy in believing. This we ask in Jesus' name. Amen.
