“…anyone in Christ is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.”

2 Cor 5:17 ESV

Creator God, we praise you that you are a God of new beginnings, a God of fresh starts, a God who wipes the slate clean and looks on us with love, tenderness and compassion.  A God who loves us unconditionally, just as we are, but also sees everything we can become. A God who clothes us in the righteousness of Jesus when we simply turn to Him. A God who is always ready to receive us, to listen, to guide and bless us.

Loving, gracious God, we praise and worship You for who You are.  We come to You today with an open and receptive heart……We come with our prayers for others and ourselves…… We come in the name of Jesus, who gave his all, so that we may have new life through him.
