Sunday's gift

A rare event-felt unwell so didn't make it to church this am. Both daughters at home so we had a brief 'family church'. Read a prayer from the book The Worship Sourcebook.
For those who like me have been used to extemporary praying it's surprisingly refreshing to use prepared prayers

O God, 

we joyously come together to worship, 

realizing we need not summon you into our midst, 

for you are here. 

We need not call you into the secret places of our hearts, 

for you are there. 

We need our eyes of faith to be opened, 

that we may see you; 

our ears to be unstopped, 

that we may hear you; 

our minds to be sensitive, 

that we may know you; 

our hearts to be tender, 

that we may receive you. 

Grant each one a blessing, O Lord, 

as each has need, 

in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
