Faithful, promise-keeping God,
you alone know the truth about us.
We bow before you,
willing to open our lives to your refining, redeeming power.
Shine the light of your presence into our lives:
we offer the wounded places —
that you may heal them;
we offer the selfishness that betrays your love —
that you may forgive us;
we offer the places where we have given in to hopelessness —
that you may rescue us
and give us your courage
and your freedom.
We open ourselves to your grace
which alone can make us into your Body
as you have called us to be.
Shape us into the
your world needs us to be.
We ask in the name of Jesus,
who moves among us
and makes us your own.
