A Prayer for Sunday, November 1, 2015

The Lord’s Day

O God,

We bring our best before you in worship today.

Sometimes our best doesn’t seem all that good to us.
Sometimes our best seems tainted by our worst.

Truth be told, we live most of our lives
somewhere between our best and our worst.

It doesn’t make us feel any better to
bring our mediocre before you in worship.

But Lord, this is all we have.

It is what it is.
We are who we are.
We’ve done what we’ve done.

Thank you that you, in your grace,
accept and love us just as we are.

Thank you that you, in your grace,
help us to grow into the best
followers of Jesus that we can be.

So here we are.
And here you are.

We praise you, O God …
