(suitable for Women's fellowship, bible study or meeting)
We come together to give you honour and praise. We ask that you would help us to draw close to you. Please come and speak your words of wisdom into our lives.
Help us to embrace one another, our similarities, our differences, our concerns and our joys. We long for your touch on our lives, that we might be your hands and feet to the world. Inspire our hearts, heal our wounds, bring your peace into our worries and your hope into our disappointments.
Come Lord and weave your love into our fellowship together, that we may overflow with grace and allow your truth to light up our lives anew.
