Father, you are good and do good, so please teach us your statutes. We have been made your children and are like you through the work of Christ. Remove our pride so that we grow through your fatherly corrections; soften our hearts so that we are not oblivious to them, but instead delight in your law. Thank you that you continue to shape us, may we grow up in good works. May we relish the full value of your word for it is better than thousands of gold and silver pieces. May we encourage each other at JCU as we see your valuable work in us as a group. Keep us looking to your word to challenge and encourage us.
