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.
