Amazing Saturday

This Saturday prayer is from the Community of Iona... Scotland. It is so amazing that peoples of all times and spaces can pray together... and especially pray together to prepare our hearts for worship. How neat is that. We are never alone when we worship. While we might be alone in our own homes, worship is never alone. Prayer: O God, set Your blessing on us as we begin this day together. Confirm us in the truth by which we rightly live. Confront us with the truth from which we wrongly turn. We ask not for what we want, but for what You know we need as we offer this day and ourselves for You and to You. Prepare our hearts and minds and souls for Your Glorious Worship tomorrow. Be with those who lead in Worship, that they too may take many hours to prepare for bringing Your Word into our hearts. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen. (adapted from “Iona Abbey Worship Book”)
