one in three and three in one
in perfect love and unity with one another
in perfect love and unity with all creation
through whom all know and unknown to us
all that has been and all that is yet to be
finds it source, its origin, its very reason for existence
how can we offer our praise?
How can we bring our worship?
How can we carry our devotion to you our God, maker and shaper of our very begins?
We, who are made in your very image.
We, who you loved so much you came and lived among us, as Jesus Christ our Lord.
For our prayers, our songs, our meditation on your word seems so short, so little in comparision to all you have given us
Yet we know your deepest desire is for us to come before you in worship before your royal courts
and we bow in humility at your feet now
wishing to listen to your word,
to grow in our faith
to deepen our discipleship
May your holy spirit sweep through us this hour
sweep through us to cleanse our hearts and minds
of all which gets in the way of our true devotion this day
our worries and anxieties of past hurts and for the future
our sadness at loss of something or someone dear to us
our disappointment at commitments not kept, promises broken.
Release us from all which gets in the way of our one goal as Christians
so we may follow the path Christ leads us on
