The opening prayer for worship defines the movement of today’s sermon. Lord God, from the farthest corners of the universe to the most tender place within our hearts Your Grace abounds with  energy and joy to every living creature. We praise you for the gift of Your sustaining Grace and ask that in this service Your Holy Spirit of wisdom would increase our deep relish of the power of Grace so that we may have confidence in every circumstance and in every need.  We pray in Jesus’s name.  Amen.
