Today's prayer

Hallelujah!

Gathered, Beloved of Yahweh,

here we are in your holy presence.

I can't help but talk about how good you are

and how good you have been.

From birth, you breathed into me the breath of life.

As I grew from a stumbling toddler to a child with skinned knees,

you welcomed me into the congregation through the waters of baptism.

As a young adult, God, even as life got hard,

and wilderness seemed to overwhelm,

you waited patiently for me to return.

Upon returning to your loving arms, how awesome, how awe-struck,

I was to know the meaning and power of your never failing grace!

How grateful I am to know that you have invited me to be in

worshipful, praise-filled service

to you and to all God's people.

Hallelujah!
