Mixed Motives

Opening Prayer for Sunday Worship…

Gracious God, we arrive at this place with mixed motives. We are all here for different reasons: some out of habit, some out of hurt, some out of curiosity, some out of a sense that there is something more to life. Some are here because of shame, others because of pride. Many simply do not know or have forgotten why they come.

But, you O God, welcome us all into your home and for us you have prepared a unique and inspiring word to be heard through song and prayer and word and deed.

Give us the grace to hear you and know you, to understand and obey you, this day and always, through Christ our LORD, AMEN.
