Prayer of Dedication
A Holy Sacrifice
O Lord who are we to stand before You? Who are we to come before
Your mighty throne? For Lord, You are so perfect and so holy, we could
never come in our strength alone. As we come to worship You as You call
Your church to do, we bring to You our humble gifts of praise. If we offer
You our best, we know that You will bless and make our gifts a holy
May the offering of our lives be a holy sacrifice to You. Wash
them clean, make them true, let them be a holy sacrifice to You.
If we could spend our earthly days singing lofty songs of praise, yet no
music would be worthy of Your throne. But if our gifts are from the heart,
then Your spirit does its part to make them a holy sacrifice.
Children three years old and under may go to the Nursery.
