Prayer: Great God, may we worship You this day in joy and praise. May our prayers rise up to You like an evening offering. May our voices rise up to You like hymns of praise. May the words of the sermon illumine Your will so that we take Your word into our lives this week. May the work of those who lead in worship serve to glorify You this day and always. Be with those Emergency and Canadian Forces personnel who are working with the floods of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Protect them in their work and provide them with unlimited energy. But in everything, may Your will be done. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
