Lord, our Rock and Redeemer, thank you that you are perfectly faithful; you never forget, never fail and never take back a promise. You have promised that, when your people gather in your name, your presence is here with us. Fix our eyes on you and let our ears be attentive to your voice. Restore to us the joy of our salvation as we worship you. May we grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To you be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
