Prayer of Thanksgiving
(inspired by Colossians 1)

In your kingdom, Lord,
there are no favourites,
all are equal,
all carry the image
of the one who made all things,
and all are welcome in your home.
You forgive those who in humility
make the journey to repentance,
even those who now reject you.
Such love,
beyond our imagining.
Such love,
that could die for us.
Such love
sown into hearts,
that we might display its beauty
through lives and words.
Thank you Lord!
