Lord please give us life through your word and cut away the sin that so easily entangles. Convict our hearts by your Spirit and bring us to our knees in humble repentance. Give us joy in knowing you – the riches of your grace and the lavishing of your love. May we bathe in the goodness of the gospel day by day and clothe ourselves in Christ. May his beauty shine through to those around us and give us eagerness to point others to him.
