Prayer of Preparation for Worship based on Psalm 2

Heavenly Father, we gather here again to worship, according to your sovereign will and redemptive call. You are unmoved by the nations who rage against You and the peoples who plot in vain against Your Anointed One. You have set King Jesus on his eternal throne. Lord, you reign forever. Your glory is eternal and Your love is steadfast towards those who take refuge in you.

Holy Spirit, lead us today as we worship. Help us to serve with fear and rejoice with trembling as we meditate on the glory of the incarnate, crucified, raised, and now glorified Lord Jesus. It is in his name we have gathered and his name we seek to glorify. Amen.
