Prayer: Gracious Father in heaven, you who are kind and good to your people, we plead with you this morning to do what is just and right in the lives of your people. We are fallen creatures and we often fail you. Yet, you have told us of your love for us and your constant care for us. Each day you provide for our needs. You give us our daily bread and more. You have blessed us with the good things of this life. We thank you for your kindness. We thank you for adopting us into your family. We thank you for not giving us what our sins deserve. Please help us to walk with you and seek first your kingdom and righteousness. Grant to us the grace to love you and your Word. Help us, by your Spirit, to do all that you have commanded us. We need your help, Father. Without it, we would be a people without hope. We ask these things in the Name of Christ. Amen.
