Heavenly Father, please work again to shape us by your word. As we meet together this week may you reorder our desires and priorities to reflect what you love. Help us to honestly consider ourselves and see our failings. May we gladly behold Christ Jesus who rescues us from all our sin. Give us joy as we recognise the peace and forgiveness that he has brought about for us. Stoke our hope in him and his glorious return that it may overwhelm all fear and confusion that we face today. Please bring this about through the power of your Spirit and for your glory.
