“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God.” Psalms 42:1
Abba, our Lord God. We thank you and praise your glorious name. In your sacred throne above the heavens we come before at your feet to worship you and bless you. On this blessed day, we join together rejoicing to celebrate our Love-Feast. Father, grant us the forgiveness of our sins. We are also forgiving others just as you forgive us. As a deer gets thirsty for a stream of cool water, our souls are truly thirsty for you oh God! You let us drink from the river of your goodness. We feast on the abundant food you provide for us. You lavish our souls from the spiritual food you graciously give us. We pray that we may always seek the spirit of liveliness and festiveness of our assembly.
Truly we are too blessed to be selfish. We will bring in everyone and shall make people come in so that your house will be full of true worshippers. Father, bestow us your benediction in the midst of our holy convocation. Cover us with your Holy Spirit, our families, brethren and friends. Bless your most holy name. Amen!
