More Than Words

Our Heavenly Father,

We join with the heavenly host,
declaring, “You are Holy!”
We make that declaration with the utmost respect.
We stand in awe of You, O God.

And we pray that as we gather we would do so
with a desire to be Holy
as You are Holy.

Forgive us when we sin
and “repent” with empty words
and ritualistic “worship.”
For we know You desire our hearts,
our broken, contrite hearts
more than our going through 
the motions of worship.

As we gather Together to worship this week,
we want to see Your Holiness.
And we want to hunger and thirst to be like You.

As we gather Together for worship this week,
we want to see Your Holiness.
And we want to experience the life change
that can happen only when You change us
from the inside-out, O Holy God.

So…
Break our hearts.
Bring us to You.
Bind us Together.

In Jesus’ name,
AMEN.
