All glory and praise are Yours, Lord God,
Creator of the universe and Father of all:
we thank You for calling us in Jesus
to be Your beloved people
and temples of Your Holy Spirit.
Remember the promises of the Lord Jesus
and listen to the prayer we offer in His Name.
Bless + us in all our actions,
and bless + this meeting place of Your people.
Help us to recognize Your presence among us,
fill us with Your joy,
and guide us at all times.
We give You praise and thanks, heavenly Father,
through Jesus Christ Your Son
in the love of Your Holy Spirit,
now and always and for ever.
