“My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.”
Psalms 51:17 NIV
Let us pray.
Lord Jesus, what is our small sacrifice compared to the sacrifice that You have given to us for our very lives?
Your love draws us out of the darkness of our sin tainted souls.
Our riches are shadowed by our brokenness.
We hear You calling to us through the distractions that tempt us, that cloud our judgement.
The ears of our souls strain to guide us back to the sweetness of life that You offer us everyday.
Our outward lives are masks that try to hide our distraught and fleeing hearts.
Our souls earn for You, our lives thirst for the living water,
Sin cannot hold us from Your calling voice, Your words of freedom against the weighing bondage of sin.
The richness of Your grace given through Your sacrifice of life and love.
Lord Jesus, our redeemer, our saviour, the one who frees us to live in this life and the life to come.
Thank-you. We pray all this in Your holy name, the name that is above all names, the name that saves us. Amen.
