Opening Hymn: Now Thank We All Our God #643
Lord, we come into your presence this morning with the busy schedules of summer activities crowding our lives. Our souls need to be fed and yet we seem powerless to find nurture and feeding that will sustain us. Open our ears, our eyes, and our hearts this day to hear your words of hope and healing for us. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on
earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we
forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us
not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and
the glory, forever. Amen.
