Beginning and Ending Prayer
By Stephen W. Hiemstra
We praise you for creating us, male and female, in your image, not for our glory, but yours in the beginning (Gen 1:27).
In humility, we confess that we have not always preferred to live in your light or to be good (Gen 1:3-4).
We give thanks that in creating heaven and earth you made your presence abundantly clear (Romans 1:19-20)
and that we might escape perdition through the death and resurrection of your son (1 Cor 15:3-4).
We beg you that we might choose the light and honor your son through the power of your Holy Spirit (John 14:6).
Through Jesus Christ, who is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end (Rev 1:8), Amen.
