All-merciful God, we kneel before You, blessing You ad praising You for your goodness. We come before You as little children, knowing that we are home in your embrace. You have blessed us and redeemed us, welcoming us and accepting us in all our flaws, fears, and foolishness. You sent your Son to show us that we are all beloved, and to call us to be disciples. Send your Spirit to inspire us to work with to heal our hearts and our relationships. Send us to attend the sick, the suffering, and the sorrowing; send us to proclaim your goodness and blessing into the world. Look with favor, O Loving One, upon those for whom we pray, and lift up their needs before You.
