A Prayer for Sunday

Our Father in heaven,

We call you Father.
We call You Father because You have adopted us.
We call You Father because You have accepted us into Your family.
You have accepted us as Your sons and daughters.

Thank You, God. Praise You, God.

Father, You gave Your Son to offer acceptance.
Jesus, You sacrificed all for us to be accepted.
Holy Spirit, You have been poured out into our hearts to assure us of God’s acceptance.

Thank You, God. Praise You, God.

Gather us Together Sunday, O God.
That we might remember how You love us.
That we might remember how You have accepted us.
So that we can start loving each other.
And start accepting each other.

Because too often we keep each other at arms length.
We get annoyed with one another.
We judge one another.
We feel superior to one another.
We give up on one another.

We need transformation, O God.
Transformation that is possible
through the power of Your Holy Spirit
making us into the likeness of Jesus.

We pray in Jesus’ name,

AMEN
