Pre-Service Prayer:

Lord, I do not come because my soul is free from sin and pure and whole or worthy of Your grace. I do not speak to You because I’ve ever justly kept Your laws and dare to meet Your face.

I know that sin and guilt combine to rule over every thought of mine and turn from good to ill. I know that when I try to be upright and just and true to You, I am a sinner still.

In Christ alone my trust I place, and come boldly to Your throne of grace, and there commune with You. Salvation sure, O Lord, is mine, and, all unworthy, I am Yours, for Jesus died for me. Amen (cf. TLH 379).
