“Lord, You Have Come to the Lakeshore


 Opening Prayer 

Lord, we come into your presence this morning
with the busy schedules of summer activities
crowding our lives. Our souls need to be fed and yet
we seem powerless to find nurture and feeding that
will sustain us. Open our ears, our eyes, and
our hearts this day to hear your words of hope and
 healing for us. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Morning Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
