Worship of the Week this week comes from Rev Lynn McChlery, Rev Iain Paton and the congregation of Auchterarder Parish Church
Weekly Worship prayer for the week: 17 September, 2023
God of wisdom,
Whose knowledge is too wonderful for us,
Who created the world and all that it contains,
Who knows each blade of grass and hair upon our head,
We are grateful for the part we play in Your vision for creation
And we offer You praise for Your infinite love for us and our world.
God of parables,
we give You thanks for Jesus,
who brings Your wisdom to us through parables and stories,
through love and action,
through prayer and sacrifice.
We thank You that even when we are not wise enough to grasp Your message,
Your love for us never falters
and Your patience with us is unceasing.
God of inspiration,
we thank You that we are not You,
that we do not have to hold all that You hold,
that we have limits and we are limited,
yet You still trust us to be partners in Your creation.
By the power of the Holy Spirit,
encourage us in our journey with You,
inspire us to live for Your kingdom,
seeking Your wisdom in all we say and do.
We pray all of this in the name of God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
