God of blessing, you shower us with gifts and surround us with love. In hope we pray: Give us life in you, O God.  

Strengthen us to forgive ourselves and others.  

     Give us life in you, O God.  

Teach us to seek after peace and pursue it.  

     Give us life in you, O God.  

Help families to pray, rest, and recreate together.  

     Give us life in you, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God give us life-giving repentance and grant us salvation through Jesus, the Son of God. Amen.
