Let us adore the Father, the God of love;
who created us;
who continually preserves and sustains us;
who has loved us with an everlasting love
and given us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.
Let us glory in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Though he was rich, yet for our sakes he became poor;
he was tempted in all points as we are, yet without sin;
he became obedient to death, death on a cross;
he was dead and is alive for ever;
he has opened the kingdom of heaven to all who trust in him.
Let us rejoice in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life;
by whom we are born into the family of God;
whose witness confirms us,
whose wisdom teaches us;
whose power enables us.
All praise to you, Holy Trinity, for you live and reign, one God forever and ever.
John Wesley, 1703-1791, English churchman and founder of Methodism
2000 Years of Prayer
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ
and the love of God
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
be with you all.
