To the God Who Makes All Things New

881C265227

Almighty Father in heaven, we thank You for making all things new!

We praise You now as our Creator, and we will praise You forever as our Re-Creator in Jesus Christ.

Thank You for washing us, cleansing us, and purifying us, for hiding Your face from our sins and blotting out our iniquities through the washing of regeneration that we have received in Jesus’ blood and by the renewing of the Holy Spirit.

Father, we thank You that the old things have passed away; that we no longer live in sin, in guilt, in shame, under condemnation, alienated and distant from You, but that we have been brought near through the sacrifice of Your Son and we stand before You clean and pure; counted as righteous and holy through Your Son.

Father, just as You created us in our nature after Your own image, give us the strength, courage, and commitment to be more and more conformed to the image of Christ in our lives.  Help us to walk daily in His steps, to speak His words, to show His grace, compassion, and love, and to be His hands and feet in this world.

Father, may we truly come to know Jesus; may we see Him face to face.  Lord, touch us, hold us, use us, and mold us.  Let us truly live in You.

Father, may we allow Jesus to draw us ever nearer, and hold us in His loving arms.  May He wrap us in His gentle presence, and, when the end comes, Father, we ask that He bring us home to You.

We ask these blessings of You and give You our eternal thanks through the name of Jesus Your Son and our Savior, Amen!
