Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear heavenly Father—I pray that You would send Your Holy Spirit to guide my worship this day.  Open my heart to the truths of Your Word.  Lead me to repent of my sins with all sincerity.  Assure me of Your forgiving love.  Move me to follow You with faithfulness.  I ask this in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
