PRAYER OF INVOCATION
We are drawn to worship you, God of Creation, by the mystery of your power to bring into existence what did not exist. We could be too awestruck to approach you except that the gospel of Jesus Christ assures us of your loving acceptance of our humble homage in faith and in penitence for our sins. Amen
