Lord of All That Is,

Too often we are so caught up in our own joys, struggles, hopes, failures, mistakes and victories that we forget the most important thing about us is You.

You are the One who has created and loves us. You are the One who has sent Jesus to redeem and lead us into life that is both abundant and eternal. You are the One who gives the Holy Spirit to continuously comfort, challenge and shape us.

So with a single breath, we simultaneously confess our self-centeredness and give You thanks. 

Grace us into knowing Whose we are and who we are. Patiently guide us into a deeper relationship with You that enables us not just to survive but to embrace life. And be the potter to our clay so we become disciples who share Jesus’ love in real ways in real lives that really make a difference.

We pray this in the strong name of Jesus – not because of what we can do, but because of all that You do.

Amen.
