"But as for me, by Your abundant lovingkindness
I will enter Your house,
at Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You"
"The Lord has heard my supplication,
The Lord receives my prayer."
We come to this time with a sense of excitement and expectancy, responding to God's love and to His will as it is made plain to us . . .
Adult Prayer: My God, because of Your great love, I come into your house. I worship in Your holy temple. I bow down to You in reverence. Lead me to do your will. Make your way plain for me to follow. You listen to my cry for help. You will answer my prayer. In Jesus' name, Amen. So be it!
Children's Prayer: Dear God, I want to learn to worship You. Because You love me so much, I want to learn how to follow You wherever You lead me to go. Please show me what You want me to do. In Jesus' name. Amen. So be it!
