Father God, thank you for adopting me into your family of believers. Thank you for calling me by my name to come out of the darkness and into your marvelous light. Thank you for my church home and family of believers. Thank you for your saving touch upon my relatives. Help me to celebrate the joy of your salvation daily in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven.”(Colossians 1:3-5a ESV)
