Lord God, we celebrate the moments when we see your glory
but sometimes our lives are a little too common.
We focus on our own satisfactions rather than focusing on your kingdom.
We seek for ourselves and forget our neighbors.
We harden our hearts, our lives, our spirits
against the transformation of your love.
But we know, O God, that you have power
that bring springs of life
from even the hardest rock.
Bring your glory to life in us.
Make our hearts your own,
that your blessing will be the seed
of new creation for all those around us. Amen.
