Prayers_of_a_Life_in_Tension_webLord of Lords, Prince of Peace, Spirit of Holiness,
We praise you for blessing us with life, a vision of how to live it, and family to share it with. We praise you for your faithful presence on good days and not so good days. Forgive us for our willfulness. Forgive us for sins against those around us and sins against you. Plant in us seeds of forgiveness and the patience to watch them grow. Plant in us the desire to follow you and to prosper your kingdom. Not just asking for blessings, but becoming blessings to those around us. Blessing not only those easy to love but those who are not so easy to love. Grant us strength for the day, grace for those we meet, and peace in all things. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
