Prayer, day 1857
we bow before You in humble prayer,
our hearts filled with gratitude
for your grace and mercy.
Merciful One, we have offended against You and each other
with willful pride, through our own fault:
forgive us and heal us, we pray.
Lord, You are our food and drink,
our portion and our cup:
may we open wide our hearts to receive You.
Fill us with wisdom,
that we may sing out your praise
and testify to your saving deeds in all the world.
Offering up our cares and concerns before You, O God,
we ask that You grant your blessing to those we now name.
