God, we thank you for your grace
For your reaching down from heaven
To touch our ordinary lives
In unexpected places
When we might feel anxious
Wondering what is next

God we thank you for your presence
As Paul prayed for the Ephesians
May the eyes of ours hearts be enlightened
In order that we may know the hope to which he has called us
The riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
And his incomparably great power for us who believe.
May we know the power that is the same as the mighty strength
He exerted when he raised Christ from the dead
And seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms

God open the eyes of our hearts
To see you beside us
Wherever we are
Your grace seeing us
Loving us
Your encouragement energising us
To commitment
To a partnership
That will see your promises of a new Kingdom come
And your will being done on earth as it is in heaven

God we take hold of your promise
To stick with us until you’ve done everything you promised

May we sense that presence, grace and promise
We offer ourselves to it

In Jesus name
