Dear Lord, help me to be fully alive to Your holy presence. Enfold me in Your love. Let my heart become one with Yours.
Teach me to see people as You do – bearing Your image, being worthy of Your love, and needing Your care. May Your great love find in my heart a vessel through which that love can be displayed. I ask for the grace to let myself be shaped by You, our loving Creator.
Eternal God, heavenly Father, You have graciously accepted me as a living member of Your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and You have blessed me with the grace of forgiveness through the sacrifice He made for me and for all people. Send me now into the world in peace. Grant me strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord.
