Our Night of Worship and Dedication || Guest Blog by Leigh Grames

This past Friday we experienced an incredible evening of worship, prayer, celebration, and community as we gathered for Night of Worship. The highlight of the night was a special prayer and dedication led by Pastor Brian, which you can read below. As you read this post we hope you feel inspired by the images, prayer, and set list. We are excited about the purposes and vision God has given us for 2018 and beyond. Thank you for being part of this beautiful journey!

Dedication of Ourselves and Consecration of This Place: A Responsive Prayer

Our Father in heaven, holy be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done – in this Place, as it is in heaven. And the people said – Amen.

God, when we sin and we will, hear our prayers of confession and forgive us our sins. And the people said – Amen.

Lord God, we are your chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, those who belong to you, and those who have received mercy, give us always a heart of worship and praise. And the people said – Amen.

Our awesome God, fill this place with your presence, teach us your ways, and show us your glory. And the people said – Amen.

Jesus, you have called us and commissioned us as your missional friends and sent us to bear much fruit that lasts. To do this, we need the power of your Holy Spirit. So fill us again so we may do your work on earth. And the people said – Amen.

Jesus, may there be hundreds of people who become your followers. Bless us with the great joy of seeing our family, our friends, our community come to faith in you. And the people said – Amen.

Holy Spirit, open our eyes to see the needs and hurts of the world around us, and give us always a heart of compassion. And the people said – Amen.

Jesus, make us a people of your Word, who love your Word, study your Word, teach your Word, and live by your Word. And the people said – Amen.

Holy Spirit, help us to love one another, encourage one another, comfort one another, and serve each other in humility and kindness. And the people said – Amen.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – we have been blessed by you to be a blessing. To those who have been given much, much is expected. May we always be found to be faithful stewards of your grace and your resources. Holy Spirit, open our eyes to see the needs and hurts of the world around us. And the people said – Amen.

And now, Lord God, we offer you our hearts, our lives, our dreams, our desires, our future – it all belongs to you. May Living Word be a place of FLOURISHING. To you be the glory in the church and in the world, now and forever. And all the people SHOUTED very loud – Amen!
