God at Work - Ephesians 1:3-14

Our God and Father
You have blessed us,
Chosen us,
Predestined us for adoption.
You have redeemed us,
And forgiven us,
Lavished your grace on us,
And united us with Christ.
You have granted us an eternal inheritance,
And sealed us with your Holy Spirit
To the praise of your glory…

In Christ - Ephesians 1:1,2

Father, you willed to raise apostles,
You called them to speak of Christ Jesus.
You created a church of saints,
You gave us faith,
And you brought us in to Christ Jesus.
Thank you for grace,
Thank you for peace,
Thank you for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Life in Groups - Racism

Father forgive me that I have not seen your image in people;
That my fear of others has conquered my love.
Forgive me that I have not seen the blood of your son shed for all people;
But have instead thought your death was for me alone.
Forgive me that I have not seen the images of heaven;
Of a people gathered around your throne from every tribe, language and nation.

Transform my heart to be like your heart;
And my eyes to see what you see;
And my life to be as your death;
That I may love all people;
As you love us.
