Our Father in Heaven,
We praise You for your Word which instructs us and encourages us so that we can maintain hope with fortitude.
You are the source of encouragement and fortitude!
May we therefore be united, and in agreement with one voice in the manner of Christ Jesus to offer praise to You.
May the believers in Grace Church welcome one another, as Christ welcomed us, to the glory of God!
May You, the God of hope, fill Grace Church with all joy and peace as our faith grows in You, until through the power of the Holy Spirit we overflow in hope!
In Christ we pray, Amen
