🎶 Amazing Grace



📖 Matthew Chapter 11 Verse 16 – 19 & 25 – 30
📖 Romans Chapter 7 Verse 15 – 25(a)




Let us Pray
Come to me,
come to me,
come to me,
is the chorus of your invitation, God.

Yet we arrive carrying so much baggage:
things done and left undone.
We arrive with the very things we sought to leave behind:
plans half-baked and hopes over-cooked.

And still, you are there:
arms outstretched,
welcome table prepared,
grace already weaving its slow path
through the warp and weft of our lives.

Easy is your yoke,
light is your burden,
steadfast is your kindness,
set us free to rest in you.
We pray for the things that divide us,
and keep us from seeing your image
in the other,
in the enemy,
in ourselves.

We pray for the things we think unite us
but actually push others away.
Move us beyond
our teams,
our tribes,
our parties,
our definitions,
and our denominations.

Prepare us for lives of
yoke sharing,
burden lifting,
grace proclaiming,
and peace breathing:
for you are gentle and humble of heart.

Hear us now as a family we pray:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.


🎶 Be Thou my Vision
