Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, our Father in heaven, on this solemn day of remembrance we have come into Your presence for worship. We recognize our many sins and understand that they are the reason Your Son, Jesus Christ, had to die. We thank You, Jesus, for assuming our guilt and bearing our shame upon the cross. We rejoice, dear Father, that You have forgiven us our sins, as we are led by the Holy Spirit to confess those sins and place our faith in Jesus as our Savior. Instruct us this day and instill within our hearts a singular devotion to Your kingdom and Your saving name. Amen.
