Opening Prayer

ONE:  Eternal God, whose signature we see, if we dare to look, in the creation of the universe, help us this hour to look and to listen for Your handwriting and Your voice in this place, among these people.

ALL:  Connect our temporary praise to Your timeless rhythms, Your ageless melodies, Your everlasting joyful noise.  Guide us now to focus upon You, knowing that in You, our distractions becomenew possibilities for action.

ONE:  Breathe life into our singing, our praying, our speaking, our listening, our touching, that all these activities might become more than they are.

ALL:  In our worship we reach out to You, O God, knowing that You have already enfolded us in Your arms. In Jesus, we pray. Amen.
