A Prayer for Sunday, October 16, 2016

The Lord’s Day

O God,

We come to you with the hearts we have. They’re in the shape they’re in. They’ve been affected by the hurts and the joys we’ve experienced. They’ve been touched by your grace and love. They are what they are. They are what we are.

We come to present them to you. They’re all we have.

Please form and shape our hearts more with your love and grace. Please make them more like Jesus’ heart. Fill them with good things so that good words and good actions flow from them.

We know that the hearts with which we’ll come to you next Lord’s Day will still be broken and misshapen. But let them be more whole than they are today.

And let that increased wholeness show in the words we say, the choices we make, and the things we do.
