We confess Jesus, that we too often believe our meaning is derived from our work, our title or our status. We know that the more we understand your life the better able we are to live like you. The better we pray through you the better we get to know You. The more we read your Word the more we are blessed with the Holy Spirit. High praise is our honor to give you for the peace that you promise. Bless us with the gift of generosity as we Transform our hearts and our church. We ask this in Your precious name. Amen.
