Precious Savior, we gather together in holy fellowship to conduct the business of the church, Your body. We thank You that You are always with us and that it is Your own doing to build and lead the church. We praise You for Your eternal love for us, Your sacrifice on the cross, Your forgiveness for sinners, and Your glorious gospel of peace. We thank You that by Your mediation, we have access to God the Father. We worship You and pray that You would be honored by this meeting. We pray in Your sacred name, Amen.
