Dear Heavenly Father, Giver of life and grace, we come to You on this day of worship with complete praise and adoration for all that You are and all that You do.  We humble ourselves before you mindful that we have failed in various ways this week, and seek your mercy upon us, for Yours is the grace that wipes the slate clean and allows us to try again, knowing You are still there, ever steadfast in your love regardless of the wrongs we commit.  We thank you for that, Lord, and for the many ways You bless us, giving in abundance much more than we deserve.  Although You are perfect in Your ways, the way before us is not always perfectly smooth and easy to navigate.  Please be with us always and in all ways to help us over the rough spots and to help us take in the beauty of the journey along our way – like the wonderful people You bless us with as we travel down Your road.  I pray that we will always take time to recognize You and appreciate Your presence in our lives; and that we will do our best to bless others in return for the many ways You have blessed us, so that we might bring glory and honor to Your name.  To You our Heavenly Father we pray, with Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and with the love of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
