Prayer of Adoration to the Triune God

Here’s a beautiful prayer to the Triune God from John van de Laar.

Life-Giving, Restoring, Fulfilling God

The Word you spoke, and keep speaking, O God
   is the life, the sustenance,
   of all that is – seen and unseen.

The Life you gave, and keep giving, O Christ
   is the recreation, the renewed birth
   of every broken, wounded and sinful creature.

The breath you breathed, and keep breathing, O Spirit
   is the inspiration for creativity, compassion and community
   that connects and unites all that God has made.

Life-giving, Life-restoring, Life-fulfilling God,
   our worship seeks to honour you
   our hearts are devoted to you
   and our lives are completely given over to you. Amen.
