Prayer Before Worship, #1

Father of the faithful,
Thank you for our faith.
Thank you, Lord, for open eyes,
Re-made hearts, pardoned souls,
Opened ears to hear your word.
We have earned no speck of our forgiveness.
Yet we labor for the prize,
For the crown just up ahead,
Custom-made for each
According to our works.
Give us holy zeal today--
A passion, Lord, to serve you well,
A love for serving people,
A joy in speaking holy truth,
An awe in knowing that you work through us.

We are yours. Do as you will.
