Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7
Eternal Father, our Loving Creator, you envisioned the whole of creation and spoke your word to bring all creation to life. You took special care when forming man in your image and likeness, with potential to inculcate all your attributes and gain perfection such as yours. You breathed into us your breath of life and gave us dominion over all created things. Yet, having all, we disobeyed your only command, falling from grace into wickedness and heresy of the evil one.
Even though our rebellion cost us the loss of your grace, your love and mercy for the people you formed made your anger evaporate and you demonstrated the extent of your loving compassion, by sending Jesus to heal and save us. We are unworthy Lord, yet you have forgiven and embraced us, succouring us in our misery and sustaining us when weak. With humility, we accept your offer to rely on your supernatural love, in faith.
Lord, we are infinitely grateful for your healing and saving grace, which you pour in abundance and without measure upon all who have surrendered to Jesus completely and unequivocally. We place on your altar all our troubles and trials, with complete trust and absolute submission to your Holy Will, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and fully obeying your Holy Word. We follow Christ’s footsteps, knowing that we are abiding in you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
