O lord, our God, how excellent is your name in all the earth. Forgive us for coming too often with our petitions for our right now and tomorrow needs without proclaiming your great and mighty acts or thanking you for the joy of our salvation.
We rejoice this morning for your unfathomable amazing grace, unequaled peace and endless love. We love you and thank for loving us first/ Help us to make known today all the marvelous things you have done in us and in the lives of those we know and love.
We pray for the victims of earthquakes and tsunamis; gang violence and acts of hate; victims of AIDS and other diseases; and those who live in the gap between what is promised and what is delivered. Giver of every good and perfect gift, help us to share with the hungry and marginalized; help us to bless those who can't bless us back.
In Jesus name, Amen
