Congregational Prayer: February 5, 2012…

Every other week our congregation is blessed by men who offer our praises and petitions…


Heavenly Father, blessed Son, eternal Spirit,
     We adore thee as one Being, one Essence, and one God in three distinct Persons,
     for bringing sinners to thy knowledge and to thy kingdom.

 O Father, thou hast loved us and sent Jesus to redeem us;
O Jesus, thou hast loved us and assumed our nature,
     shed thine own blood to wash away our sins,
     wrought righteousness to cover our unworthiness;
O Holy Spirit, thou hast loved us and entered our hearts,
     implanted there eternal life,
     revealed to us the glories of Jesus. 

Three Persons and one God, we bless and praise thee,
     for love so unmerited, so unspeakable, so wondrous,
     so mighty to save the lost and raise them to glory.

O Father, we thank thee that in fullness of grace
     thou hast given us to Jesus,
     to be his sheep, jewel, portion;
O Jesus, we thank thee that in fullness of grace
     thou hast accepted, espoused, bound us;
O Holy Spirit, we thank thee that in fullness of grace
     thou hast exhibited Jesus as our salvation,
     implanted faith within us,
     subdued our stubborn hearts,
     made us one with him for ever.

 O Father, thou art enthroned to hear our prayers,
O Jesus, thy hand is outstretched to take our petitions,
O Holy spirit, thou art willing to help our infirmities,
     to show us our need, to supply words, to pray within us,
     to strengthen us that we faint not in supplication.

O Triune God, who commmandeth the universe,
     thou hast commanded us to ask for those thing
     that concern thy kingdom and our souls.

 Let us live and pray as those baptized into the threefold Name
