Father God, Holy God, Supreme Sovereign LORD God, Creator, YAHWEH! Father, we thank You for so great a salvation, were it not for You we would find ourselves amongst the trash heap of humanity, utterly without recourse or resource.
Father, by Your so great love You crossed the universe, You transcended time and place, and stepped into our realities and provided a propitiation for our sin. Father, You and only You, could make this move, only You could provide the offering, only You could receive it.
Father, when we Praise You, hopefully, somehow, we are alluding to these facts, maybe somehow we can comprehend, on some level, all that You have provided and done. Yes, our souls get happy, our spirits soar, the Joy of the Lord is our Strength, yet many times we negate the pain and suffering, we ignore the sorrow and sacrifice; we want to consume the rewards of eternal life, while leaving the strife as a meatless bone.
Father, as we come beseeching and begging the forgiveness of all of our sins, repentant, remorseful and full of regret, may we be reminded of the cost of Calvary, the pain of Advent and the price of Salvation, though free to us, purchased at great sacrifice.
Father, as we experience the washing and cleansing of the Blood, may we ever submit our wills to Him, exalt Him in praise and Honor Him in obedience, that in our service You are blessed with the sweet savor of our devotion.
Father, bless us with the continuing communion of the Holy Spirit, the empowering Fellowship of the Saints, the benevolent blessings of Your most Gracious Providence, Your perfect peace that passes all understanding, and all the blessings of an eternal and most Holy Everlasting Life.
Father, bless all the prayers of the Saints this day and most especially our prayers of intercession, as we present them before Your throne of Mercy, Grace and Peace, eternal in the Heavens, in the Mighty and Matchless Name of Jesus, YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, The Son of the Living God, and by the most potent power of His priceless and precious shed blood, amen.
