Prayer: Almighty God, you are holy, and everything you do is bathed in holiness. Your justice is holy. Your love is holy. Your goodness is holy. All that you are and all that you do is infinitely holy.
Nevertheless, we confess that we are sinners, and we sin daily in thought, word, and deed. Therefore, we are in great need of a mediator, and we need he, who is your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is our advocate when we sin, and he is the one we name as we confess our sins to you. Thank you, Father, for not treating us as our sins deserve. Our sins are like scarlet, yet the blood of Christ washes them white as snow. We praise you for your great salvation and for delivering us from our bondage and promising to deliver us safely to our eternal rest. Therefore, we have great reason to praise you in public and private. You have given us reason to sing with immense joy. You have blessed us and given us what we need each day. There is no god like our God! Please help us, Lord, to walk according to the call you have graciously placed on our lives. Please help us love you with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength. Please grant us more of your Holy Spirit each day and strengthen us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. These things we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
