Remember us this day, O Lord, and cover us with Your mercy.
Preserve us from suffering that distracts and shelter us from arrogance, especially our own. Teach us your Word. In our brokenness, prepare a home for Your Spirit that will defend and protect. Grant us a freedom, O Lord, that will baffle the proud. Grant us peace in the midst of conflict, patience when facing anger, kindness before the rude, and a self-control that demonstrates joy which cannot be denied. Cover us with the love of Christ this day, O God, and remember us. Amen.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
