Holy father,

All praise and honor be yours, for “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom 5:8)

How can we repay such a debt?

We confess that our sin defined who we were, yet you gave us a new identity in Christ.

How can we return such love?

Thank you for your example; thank you for your love.

How can we put off our shame to live in your love?

In the power of your Holy Spirit, come into our hearts; throw off our shame; heal our wounds.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
