Heavenly Father, You hear the cries of the afflicted and You do not turn from them. Fill us with only the fullest things, a love that is perfect and pure, grace freely given and hope not diminished by the suffering of this world.
Lord You are theme of our praise. and we ask that You would Set our minds upon Your holiness each day; Let those who lead in Your church be mindful of the covenant You began with Abraham and fulfilled by Your own sons death and resurrection, that You will be our God for all generations and we will be Your people.
May Your righteousness be known in the land where all is forgotten and Your wonders in the darkest night. In the same way that You call things that are not as though they were, call us from sin to righteousness that we may walk before You blamelessly.
Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16
