The following were the opening prayers for the WBB service held on 15 November 2022. The prayers build on the service’s theme of God as bread, as well as the opening song: “Falling at your feet” by Daniel Lanois.
Gracious God, we come to you stumbling and falling down, bringing with us our needs and imperfections. You invite us to surrender ourselves to you, to trust in your good and holy will. We come hungry for renewal and justice, thirsty for joy and restoration. Give us the bread of life. May we taste and see that you are good. Amen.
