Heavenly Father, we thank you for creating us. Thank you for the opportunities to create relationships that are founded in faith. Thank you for our church and the family that has been created there. We pray that you would overwhelm us with gratitude and help us to see the many blessings that you've poured on us. We pray for those who are hurting right now. We pray for those who feel alone and need your presence. Draw near to these people, and make your glory felt, powerfully. Don't let them distance themselves from you, but give them a desire to hold you closely. We pray this all in the powerful blood of a risen Christ. Amen.
