Glorious God, we come together as your people.
We come as a praising people, singing your goodness;
we come as a hungry people, longing to be fed;
we come as a praying people, bringing our needs, our joys;
we come as a journeying people, looking for direction.
In this hour of worship,
empower us for faithful living.
We pray this in the name of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, Amen.
