Almighty and Eternal Father
I come to you this morning in praise, love and thanksgiving.
In your goodness You have given me everything.
When everything was not enough to draw my heart back to you,
You sent Your Beloved Son Jesus to show me the way home.
I have nothing but myself to give to You.
I offer you this day:
all that I am,
all that I have
and all that I will do.
I ask You to bless this day, Father, and make it holy.
Help me to grow in love of You and my neighbor,
So that the conduct of my life will bring You joy.
I ask Your forgiveness for all my sins,
I know, Father, that they have been many.
In Your mercy and compassion,
Free me from my desire to sin.
Help me to forgive others as you have forgiven me,
And bring me at last into the Light of Your Presence.
I pray, as always, through Your Beloved Son Jesus, the Lord.
