As we gather may Your Spirit work within us,
as we gather may we glorify Your Name.
Knowing well that as our hearts begin to worship,
we'll be blessed because we came,
we'll be blessed because we came.
CALL TO PRAYER
“As We Come to You in Prayer”
Now, Dear Lord, as we pray,
take our hearts and minds far away
From the press of the world all around,
To Your throne where grace does abound.
May our lives be transformed by Your love,
May our souls be refreshed from above.
At this moment, let people everywhere
Join us now as we come to You in prayer.
A-men, A-men, A - - - men.
