Father, forgive us for forsaking your desires for your Creation. Forgive us for setting ourselves up as gods of our own choosing. Forgive us for worshipping our own control and delusional dominion. Forgive us for allowing this earthly kingdom to suck the soul out of our lives. Forgive us for forgetting that what is true and right and pure is only in living in your Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.



Asian Lives Matter...Lord, teach us to love our neighbor as ourselves!

Father, open our eyes to what you see as you look at this world and all you have created. Forgive us for convincing ourselves that we are more important than our neighbor. Forgive us for our sin of bigotry and hypocritical assumptions that diminish your image in us. Father, purify our hearts and minds so that we may love you with all our mind, all our soul, all our strength. Train us to love our neighbor as ourselves so that your peace and mercy will rule this earth!

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, it is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
