lord we come as we are,
imperfect and hurting
rebellious and fearful,
and yet we are met by your boundless love and mercy.
wash us therefore with your grace,
like new morning dew on scented grass.
may we rise refreshed.
wash us from the outside to our innermost being, let your grace ongulf our soul.
awaken us to your presence that we
may rise and worship you in spirit, truth words and action
help us to become signposts to your son jesus.
may those we encounter today see jesus instead of us.
help us go forth and preach the gospel with our lives!
in jesus' name
