By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Merciful father,

May your praise be ever on my lips and may I honor you in all that I do.

I confess that I have frequently honored you with my lips and not honored you in my actions. Forgive me that I may live into the example of Jesus Christ and listen more keenly to your Holy Spirit’s guidance.

Thank you for the many blessings of this life and for the limits that you have set for us in your law and in fulfilling it in our attitudes and actions under Gospel.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

be especially near to me when I am most vulnerable to temptation and cherish private sins that threaten my life and the lives of those around me. Set boundaries and remind me of them that I may live in your grace and be a witness of it to those around me.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
