Opening Prayer  


The Prayer of Old Age-- (in unison)

Psalm 71:12-18

O God, do not be far from me; O my God, make haste to help me!  Let my accusers be put to shame and consumed; let those who seek to hurt me be covered with scorn and disgrace.  But I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more.  My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all day long, though their number is past my knowledge.  I will come praising the mighty deeds of the Lord GOD, I will praise your righteousness, yours alone.    O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.  So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to all the generations to come.

Remembering 9/11/01

Dear Lord, we remember with great sadness those whose lives were taken on September 11, 2001. We hold up to you the victims’ families that they may know, despite their pain, that they can find solace in your loving presence.  Help them bring their hurting hearts to you, realizing that your everlasting arms can bear them up and that they cannot be separated from your abiding love.  Amen.
