A prayer as you prepare for worship

Blessed Father, on this sacred day I remember the glorious resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ, my Lord. By His death and rising to life I am counted a forgiven sinner and worthy to stand in Your presence. Now fill my heart with an extra measure of Your Spirit as I prepare to worship in Your house. In prayer, in Scripture, in Eucharist, in song, in sermon, in all acts of worship may I lead Your people in a closer walk with You this day; through Jesus Christ, who with You and the Holy Spirit is one Lord and one God now and forever. Amen.
