By Stephen W. Hiemstra
All praise and honor be to you
Father of all Creation
for you have created us in your image,
an image that we can spend a lifetime growing into.
We confess that we are
unworthy of being your children
unwilling to give up our favorite sins and
unable to approach you, but for the blood of Jesus.
Yet, we thank you
for coming to us in spite of our broken and polluted state,
for granting us many talents and gifts, and
for making our salvation possible.
In the power of your Holy Spirit,
forgive our division and hostility to one another,
cleanse and unite our land, and
draw us closer to you day by day.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
