Prayers of Invocation on Comfort
Most Holy and Most Gracious God, who turns the shadow of night into morning, satisfy us early with your mercy, that we may rejoice and be glad throughout the entire day. Lift the light of your faith on us; calm every troubled thought; and guide our feet into the way of peace. Perfect your strength in our weakness, and help us to worship you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Be present, O Lord, to our requests; and as you give us a desire to pray, grant us, O most Loving God, your aid and comfort in our prayers; and may the souls which thirst for your promises be filled from your abundance; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
God of nurture and care, You seek to gather us together as a mother hen gathers her chicks. You seek to be our refuge in times of trouble. As we have gathered together today, draw us closer to You, deeper in Your presence, so that we may experience Your grace made possible by Jesus, and Your sustaining comfort offered by Your Spirit. Amen.

Heavenly Father, You provide shelter, comfort, and hope to us. We lift our praises to You this morning, for Your faithfulness inspires belief in us. Your limitless love reveals more of You to us day by day. As we see You more, our faith increases. Help us to grow in our faith as we meet You in this place. Amen.
