Lord, in just a few hours your people will gather to worship you, to encourage one another, and to hear from your Word. I pray that you would begin building our faith right now. Take our minds off of the distractions of our week and draw us away from the worldly attractions of our hearts. Fill our minds with thoughts of you, with views of your glory, and the comforting sense of your presence.
I pray that as we sing songs of truth, centered around the good news of grace, the gospel would seem more amazing to us. I pray that any who walk in to our meeting without knowing you would see the light of your salvation and confess you as their Savior and Lord. I pray that fathers would be inspired, mothers would be encouraged, teenagers would be captivated, seniors would be comforted–all by the gospel of your grace.
Show us your glory, Lord, as we gather to worship your Name.
