the words to this prayer

Opening prayer before worship

Lord, today we recall your faithfulness.
Thank you that you walk with us every day, that you are with us always.
We proclaim that your promises are true and your goodness and love never fail.

In this moment we come to you and lay our lives before you.
May we honour, worship and adore you with every fibre of our being.
Father, we proclaim that you are the Holy One, the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come. Your beauty and majesty are beyond compare.
On this day 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 splendour.

Lord we adore you.
Lord we love you.
Lord we bow down and worship you.
