Our Father and our God…we, indeed, O God, if we did absolutely everything that we could, would still be unworthy servants, and it is only what Your Son has done for us that avails for us any opportunity at all to be known by You. Father, we pray, by Your Holy Spirit bring about within us that abundance of life, that fullness of life, that fullness of love, that brings out on us a life lived in a manner that it pleasing to You.
Father, we thank You for the salvation we have in Jesus Christ. We pray, O Father, make it real in us and on us. Make us like Your Son, O God, whatever it takes.
Father, all this in Christ’s holy name we pray.
