Holy Father, we are honored to carry the name of Christ. We are not boastful, arrogant or rude as Christians, as if we had anything to do with our salvation. Our boast is in You!
You reached down and had mercy on us while we were still sinners. You loved us despite our condition. Our darkened hearts did not know you until you opened our eyes to the wonders of Your Kingdom. How dare we treat others any less than how you treat us.
You are good when we deserve bad. You are kind when we have been harsh. You have mercy on us & heal our wounded souls. You restore the broken places in our lives, cleansing us from all unrighteousness. Oh, Father, may we draw others to your glory so you kingdom will continue to grow!
In the mighty name of Jesus, our soon-coming King.
