Restoration Prayer


By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Blessed Lord Jesus,

We praise you for embodying the restoration of God the Father’s divine image in human form, for your humility, self-sacrifice, and death on our behalf.

We confess that we are unwilling and unfaithful stewards of the blessings that you have bestowed on us in thoughts, words, and deeds. We have broken every commandment and, but the intervention of your Holy Spirit, would be unable to recognize our own sin. Forgive us.

We thank you for the many blessings of this life: our health, our families, and our resources. Teach us to be better stewards and give us hearts to extend your love.

In the power of your Holy Spirit, make us whole again. Worthy participants in extending your divine image to those around us.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
