Gracious God, you are Father to the fatherless and redeemer of the lost. Thank you for your saving grace in my life. Thank you for loving me at my most unlovable stages. Thank you for the joy and peace you restored to my walk. Thank you for the works you appointed and equipped me to do for your kingdom. Be glorified in my days as I spend them for your good purposes. I lift my prayer in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:8-10 ESV)
