Identity Prayer


By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Sovereign Father, Beloved Son, Spirit of Truth,

We praise you for our creation, our identity in you, and our redemption.

Forgive our failure to seek your guidance and act on the advice we have.

Thank you for your mercy, grace, patience, love, and faithfulness.

Open our hearts; illumine our minds; strengthen our hands in your service

that we might always rest in you.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
