Prayer: Almighty God, You are our refuge and our strength. It is in You that we have our being. We come this day with obedient hearts to worship You. Lamb of God You take away the sins of the world and grant us peace. We offer up to You our cares and concerns so that we can worship You fully this day in joy and praise. This new day, open our eyes to the needs of this world O Lord. This new day, open our hearts to the cries of those who suffer in this world O Lord. As we worship You, we know that our old selves – with our worries and burdens are put away and our new selves are now here. May we always serve You with gladness all the days of our life. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
