OPENING PRAYER Loving God, you have made us as your children and you keep us as the apple of your eye. We come before you in this time of worship to offer unto you our praise and thanksgiving. When the road is long and we are weary, you are gracious to us, sustaining us, and giving us Your strength. Empower us by your Spirit as we worship. Give us the grace and endurance to take up your cross and follow, no matter how difficult the road may be. Renew and revive our souls, and make us faithful as your disciples. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
