Formation Prayer

Heavenly Father, Beloved Son, Holy Spirit,

All glory and praise be to you,

for you formed me in my mother’s womb,

nurtured me as a child, and

strengthened me into an adult

guiding my family, my church, and my many mentors.

I confess that I did not always listen or

cooperate in my youthful growth.

Forgive my resistance even today

to your still, small voice

even as our culture screams in my ears

and tempts my eye in a thousand ways.

I give thanks that you are patient and did not turn

from helping form in your image.

Be ever near;

guard my heart and mind.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
