Blessed be your name oh God of the universe, because you display the courage to create and sustain this world. You are not afraid to be the first or the only one to love and participate in this dangerous world.
I confess that I do not often display such courage and have not followed your example in Jesus Christ.
I give thanks for your patience with me and for the many times that you have forgiven my weakness and rebellion.
In the power of your Holy Spirit, grant me the strength to follow your example and become the courageous person that you created me to be. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
