Who are we to stand before you? We are sinful and self-centered, broken and conceited. We have failed to consider the ramifications of our actions and instead focused solely on ourselves. We have forgotten your love and grace.
Forgive us, O God. Renew us with your Spirit. Wash us clean in the waters so that our lives might be a testament to you, so that our actions might be an offering to you, so that our thoughts might strengthen us for you. You are the focus of our lives, Dear Lord, and we pray that we might live a life pleasing to you.
