Fountain of life, we thank you for the gift of another day. Forgive us of our sins of omission –the things we didn’t do and should have done. Forgive us for the sins of commission- the sins that so easily beset us.
Help us today to offer thanks to you, not in pious gestures or empty words but by living faithful to your call. Enable us to bear the fruit of thankfulness by serving others. Empower us to reach beyond our comfort zones to build community with those around us. Help us to willingly accept the love and friendship of others. Help us to trust that you have our best interests at heart...even when tough tests come from you, our Tender Teacher.
We know that you are with us and for us everyday. In Jesus name, we offer this prayer, Amen
