Father, when we come to you, it is like walking out of darkness and into the light. There are so many things, so many experiences, that damage and spoil our lives each day. There are so many things that prevent us being the kind of people you meant us to be. It would be so easy to come simply to be held in your healing, re-creating love. Father, by your Holy Spirit enable us to be made whole by focusing on you and allowing your praise to be at the center of all we say and do today. In the name of Christ, the one who makes all things new.
