Lord God, Your Love

Lord God, your love for humankind,
present in the beginning of all things,
extends throughout history
and touches even my life.

Your love sees failings
and forgives.

Your love feels pain
and wipes away our tears.

Your love knows grief
and comforts the sorrowful.

Your love sees sin
and still loves the sinner.

Forgive us when we fail to live
lives that reflect your love.

Forgive us the many times
when we take for granted
all that you have done for us.

Transform us, through your Spirit,
and empower us to serve you
this day and all days
Amen.
