By Stephen W. Hiemstra
Almighty Father, Beloved Son, Holy Spirit,
We praise you for being willfully present in our lives—teach us to be willfully present in the lives of those around us.
We confess our need for holiness—may your example shine through us.
We confess that we are often attracted more to culture and less to you—teach use how to live faithfully in tension with the world around us.
We confess the need to be reconciled with those that pain us and those we pain—teach us how to live sacrificially in your name.
We thank you for the life and sacrifice of your son, Jesus Christ, and for many spiritual gifts showered on us by your Holy Spirit.
Grant us strength for the day, grace for those we meet, and peace.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
