A Prayer for Sunday, August 7, 2016

The Lord’s Day

O God,

As we gather in our sanctuaries to worship you today, remind us that our worship continues when we leave the building.

Help us learn and remember that you desire mercy and not sacrifice.

Help us live in light of the truth that we can go to church, sing the songs, listen to the sermon, and give an offering, and still not really worship you.

We can do all those things while having cold hearts and living callous lives.

Let us feel compassion and practice mercy. As you love and help us, let us love and help others.

Let our attitudes, motives, thoughts, words, and actions be perpetual acts of worship. Let them reflect our love for you and our love for people.

Then will our worship be worship indeed.
