A Prayer for Grace

I am bending my kneeCelticCapital8
in the eye of the Father who created me,
in the eye of the Son who died for me,
in the eye of the Spirit who cleansed me,
in love and desire.

Pour down on us from heaven
the rich blessing of your forgiveness;
You who are highest in the heavenly city,
be patient with us.

Grant to us, Savior of glory,
the fear of God, the love of God, and his affection,
and the will of God to do on earth at all times
as angels and saints do in heaven.
Each day and night give us your peace.
Each day and night give us your peace.
