Opening Prayers/Prayers of Adoration on Way/s
Inspired by John 14:6
Jesus – Savior, Friend, and Lord:
When we’re lost, confused and anxious – You are our Way.
When we misunderstand – and are misunderstood,
when we are lied to and lied about,
and when we lie or believe the lies – You are the Truth.
And when we feel drained of vitality,
or afraid of death and dying –
You are our Resurrection and the Life.
You guide us,
speak to us the Truth in love
and You give us hope … always.
For that we praise You, now and forever.
And because of that, we come to You
with all we are and aren’t,
knowing You’ll help us, and those we care about.
Gracious and faithful God
– our Creator, Redeemer and Comforter:
When we don’t know the way – You show us the way; and
When we can’t find a way – You make a way.
Thank you for Your gift of a Savior –
not a savior who stays distant and aloof,
but one who enters the warp and woof of our existence
as Emmanuel – God with us; and
who then sanctifies every place and time in which we live.
