God of secret purposes and extravagant blessings,
we come to praise you.
We come because we want to,
we sing our songs because we are glad to,
we pray for your grace because we need to,
and we ask for the love of Christ in our hearts
because without it we are a dead loss.
Please lift every shutter within our mind,
and open every door within our soul,
that you, the Lord of glory, the God of countless hosts,
may come in.
Through Christ Jesus, the joy of loving hearts.
Bruce Prewer, retired Australian Minister
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us in Christ
with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places
