“Heavenly Father, to Thee glory is sung in the highest.
“We come unto Thy loving heart, pierced by our ingratitude and sins. Lift those who sit in distress and in darkness.
“Guide us in the path of Thee for the fulfillment of Thy greater glory.
“All this we ask in the name of the strong deliverer, our only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.”
“We come before you, O loving Heavenly Father as the sun rises into this new day.
“May your eternal love rise in our hearts, a love that makes us instrument of Thy peace, a love that seeks only truth and harmony.
“In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.”
“In thee, God of our delight, we stand in Thy presence as we praise Your holiness.
“Let no evil this day soil anybody’s thoughts, words and hands. Let no hearts be conformed to lying vanities.
“Go forth, conquering God, as we beseech Thee in the path of righteousness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
