Lord of Lords, Prince of Peace, Spirit of Holiness,
We praise you for blessing us with life, a vision of how to live it, and a family to share it with.
We praise you for your faithful presence on good days and not so good days.
Forgive our pride and willfulness.
Forgive us for sins against you and sins against those around us.
Plant in us the seeds of forgiveness and the patience to watch them grow.
Plant in us the desire to follow you and to prosper your kingdom.
Let us use our blessings to bless others (Gen 12:2–3)—blessing not only those easy to love but also those who need our love.
Grant us strength for the day, grace for those we meet, and peace in all things.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer and Blessing
