Prayer: Loving God, You deserve all worship that we can give. You deserve all of our devotion, for You saved us from our sin and have brought us into covenant relationship with You. You have shown Your Faithfulness and Compassion to us, even when we have strayed from you. Thank You for Your Love which has brought me near to You. Thank You for Your Salvation. I pray, Lord, that You would grow my relationship with You. Help me to represent Your Name with honor, and to do Your Will when You call. I pray these things in the Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, AMEN.
