Sunday worship prayer

Well, at my usual tortoise pace, I seem to be doing a short blog series on prayers composed or altered by me. So here's another one. I usually pray something close to the following prayer when I arrive in the pew before Sunday morning worship:

God, thank you for bringing me to Your house
With Your people,
On Your day.
Please use this opportunity to shape me,
Mold me,
Form me,
Teach me,
Help be to become more fully
What I need to become
To better serve both you and my fellow creatures.
I ask in Jesus' name, Amen.

Then, upon returning to my pew after communion, I generally pray the same prayer, but with the "I's" changed to "we's" and with an additional thanksgiving, "And for feeding us with spiritual food."
