Our Father and Lord in heaven, we assemble before You in order to rejoice, just as You have commanded us. We are glad that You have set apart this day for rejoicing, and we are grateful that You have brought us to the point where we have remembered that the joy of the Lord is our strength. Father, we would gather before You now in our households, and we would exult in that strength. We thank You for the generations represented here, and we recall Your promises to thousands of generations of those who love and fear You. And so, Father, in faith, we present those promises back to You, and worship You as our covenant-keeping God.
Receive our gratitude now, for all of this, in Jesus’ name, amen.
