Worthy are you

Lord God Almighty, we hear you this morning calling us, even as you called to John in the book of Revelations to come up into the heavenly places. There a throne stands and one with the appearance of jasper and carnelian, the color of fire itself, sits on it. An emerald rainbow surrounds him and peals of thunder and lightning comes from the throne. The ground shakes with y...

open our eyes

Almighty God, you call us to Behold your servant, your chosen one in whom your soul delights. You put your Spirit upon him and he has brought forth justice among the nations.

call us to seek

Almighty, All-merciful Father- as we your children gather together in the name of your Son Jesus- we are reminded of Paul's words as he stood outdoors preaching to the people of Athens. So many in that city, just like ours, were worshipping an unknown God- they went through the motions but they didn't know who you were. You are the God who made the world, you are Lord of h...

Magnificent God, there was a day when John, your servant, saw the heavens open and behold, there was one seated on a white horse, his name is faithful and true, and he judges all the nations of the earth and makes war against all your foes, he has a flame of fire, a robed dipped in blood.

lion and lamb

God you revealed your Son to us as a Lion and a lamb. In the prophecies of Isaiah we see him ruling the nations with a mighty scepter, all kings and rulers quiet before his majesty. But he also is a lamb who was lead to slaughter, despised and rejected, esteemed not, one from whom all turn away. And this Lion who is lamb is why we are here. He only is worthy to bring us ne...

Eternal Father, your scriptures remind us that the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn. It shines brighter and brighter until full day. This path you have called us onto, called us homeward to glory. We are hear walking closer and closer even now into the full day of your eternal light.

Oh God, your people returned from exile, they gathered to consecrate their commitment to you and your ways. They recounted all the great deeds of your faithfulness to them and their forefathers. How you made the world, chose Abraham as your special representative, rescued Israel out of Egypt from the hand of Pharaoh, parted the sea and lead them through the wilderness, pro...
