Lord, Creator, Savior and Sustainer

Lord, Creator, Savior and Sustainer:

You called our names and we answered.

When we were lost
– You found us.
When we were sick
– You healed us.
When we were blind
– You opened our eyes.
When we were dead in our sin
– You died to give us life.
That’s why we are here;
that’s why we praise You.

Yet too often we overlook
all that you’ve done for us.
We become self-consumed,
loving ourselves too much,
others too little
and You hardly at all.

In Your grace and compassion:
hear the silent confession of our own sins,
and forgive us, we pray.
