Living Lord we gather today on this first Sunday of the new Methodist Year and come aware of your promise that where two or three are gathered in your name that you would be in the midst. We would claim that promise this morning for our time of fellowship and ask that you would be with our brother/sister N.... as they lead our time of worship and bring your word to your people gathered here.
We ask O Lord that you would grant a blessing to each one of us and enable us to go from here having had our faith lifted because we have had fellowship with one another, but more importantly that we have had fellowship with you, our living, loving Lord. We ask all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
