(an acrostic prayer)
Remembering past actions by others causes us to drop to our knees to worship You because of Your mercy and Your love, Father.
Eternal in the heavens, You are, O God, yet You see and feel our distress and You shower us with Your grace.
Move us to forgiveness for sins committed against us, Father, as You have forgiven sins we have committed against You.
Envelope us in Your mercy, Father. May we be and become more merciful, O God. May we be Your instruments of peace in this world.
Mountains of hate and evil seem to prevail in our land, dear Lord. Help us to disarm that hate and evil with Your love in Your grace.
Before we were created, You had a plan for us, Father. May we seek Your will and Your plan for us as we worship and as we allow Your Spirit to live in and through us each day.
Empty us of our selfish, hurtful, prideful attitudes and actions, Father. Fill us with Yourself, that the world would know You through us each day we live.
Remember us, even as the dying thief on the cross, we ask You to remember us as we live and breathe and have our being, dearest Father.
In the name of the one who neither slumber nor sleeps, but remembers His children. Amen.
