God of Creation, Jesus Redeemer, and Holy Spirit who guides and sustains us, hear our prayers this day.
We know the many ways in which we have failed to do the tasks, which You have set before us.
We choose comfort over service to You.
Our fears and doubts lay claim to our lives and we shrink from the opportunities You give us.
We lack the stamina to follow Christ and have ignored the Spirit’s calls to justice.
Forgiving God, look into our soul and see the delight of God’s heart.
Lift and restore us to Your grace.
Heal us, Gracious One, for we ask this in the name of Jesus the Christ.
