Thank you for choosing us to be your children.
Remind us our identity is in you; and not what we have, want or do.
Please heal our triggers, and teach us to not trigger others,
So we can freely enjoy and boldly share your love.
We ask this in Jesus name, Amen
John 1:12 (MSG)
But whoever did want him,
who believed he was who he claimed
and would do what he said,
He made to be their true selves,
their child-of-God selves.
Ephesians 1:4-5 (MSG)
Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love.
Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.
