God of Creation, let my heart adore the work of Your hands. With Your mighty voice, You spoke into existence every living thing. With Your mighty Words, You have remade my heart. With Your tender hands, the world was formed. With Your compassionate hands, You shaped my soul. My being is filled with awe and wonder because You have offered forgiveness for my rebellious heart. My aches are soothed in Your presence. My pain is healed by Your Spirit’s power. Father, fashion me into the image-bearer I was meant to be. Take away any defilement that hinders You using me as a vessel of love and grace. Reveal to me the depths of Your heart as evident in Your Holy Word. May I live a life of worship and praise because You are worthy, Lord God. Let the revelation of the mystery of the cross never cease to amaze and delight me. Under the Word of truth in Colossians 2:13-14 and the authority of Christ, I pray upon the altar of the King.
When you were dead in your sins
and in the uncircumcision of your flesh,
God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,
having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness,
which stood against us and condemned us;
He has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.
Colossians 2:13-14, NIV
