Everlasting Father, thank you that you are merciful and forgiving to your people, even though we have rebelled against you. Many times I have turned away from you to try and rule over my own life. I have sinned in thought, word and deed but your mercy is greater than my sin. Your love is bigger than my rebellion. You have said that my faith will never be put to shame when my trust is in you. Forgive me Lord, and guide my words, thoughts and deeds today that I may live in a way that glorifies you. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
