All praise and honor be to you for you created us in your image and sustain our lives in the ups and downs of daily life. Blessed be your name above all names.
We confess that we have not always honored your name and acted in the manner of your sons and daughters. Forgive our selfishness focus on ourselves that we might cherish human life as priceless the way that you do.
Thank you for your gracious and merciful patience, for your covenantal love and faithless in spite of our lack of patience, inattention to your care, and spitefulness as sons and daughters.
In the power of your Holy Spirit, grant us strength to meet the day, grace for those we meet, and peace. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
