A prayer of John Wesley:

 Let us adore the Father, the God of love; who created us; who continually preserves us; who has loved us with an everlasting love and given us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Let us glory in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich he became poor, he was tempted in all points as were , yet without sin; he became obedient to death, death on a cross: he was dead and is alive for ever; he has opened the kingdom of heaven to all who trust in him. Let us rejoice in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life; by whom  we are born into the family of God, whose witness confirms us, whose wisdom teaches us, whose power enables us. All praises to you, Holy Trinity( for you live and reign, One God for ever and ever Amen)
