A Pastoral Prayer for Sunday

Lord, love Your people through our worship.
May Your truth be spoken in prayer and praise.
Attend Your word to their mind and heart;
And may mind and heart and soul be lifted
up to You.

Lord, love Your people through the preaching.
May Your truth be in every word spoken.
Attend Your word to their mind and heart;
And may each piece of dross be removed,
  each godly character be refined, each godly
 motive be reinforced, and each stain
of soul be cleansed through repentance.

Lord, love Your people through Your presence.
May Your presence be in our prayer, and praise, and preaching.
Take away all other thoughts than You.
Make Yourself our only desire, and Your will
our greatest delight.
