Psalm 65:8 says, ‘The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.’ This morning another opportunity has dawned on us to enter worship of our Saviour from all our homes across the city and beyond. Jesus is calling each of us to pause and let him awe us with his wonders.

Then we invite you to join in the following prayer about our first waking:
