Father in heaven, God of our Forefathers, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who am I to raise my voice in prayer to you? Yet I do it in obedience and in trust. I am your child in Christ. Have mercy on me, I plead. God of the covenant, help me to be faithful! Bless me again, Lord; and lead me into your perfect ways, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God now and forever, Amen.
