Prayer 1658: that our lives be testimony

Blessed Jesus, we thank you for the gift of this day:
make us worthy of bearing your Name in it.

Let today be a day in which we remember
the mercy shown us in all our failings,
and be ourselves merciful and kind.
Let today be a day made holy
by how we reflected God's mercy and compassion for all.
Let today be a day in which we act
renewed by our hope, faith, and trust
in God and each other.
Let today be a day
of reconciliation, liberation, and humble service.
Let today be a day in which it is known
that we honored and glorified God's love in all things.
Let today be a day
for acts of healing where there is pain,
and understanding where there is fear.

Let our lives be testaments
and living offerings to your saving help, O Holy One.
Almighty God, Creator, Savior, Life-giver,
open wide your hand and fill us with grace.
