God of Second Chances ( John 21:15-19)

Thank you for loving us always.
You are the God of second chances
Even when we don’t forgive ourselves,
You give us another chance.

You know that we also love you
but sometimes we don’t show it.
Sometimes we focus too much on ourselves.
Sometimes we worry about the wrong things.
Remind us to focus on you and your teachings.
Remind us to follow you.
Remind us to take care of each other.

You are the God of second chances,
of third chances and fourth chances.
Remind us that we are human
but we can seek the divine.
Quiet our minds so that we can take the time
to hear you, to seek you out in the quiet space.
Open our hearts to your plan and your teachings.

As the God of second chances,
you accept us as we are and
take pride in whom we will become.
You ask us if we will love and follow you.
We offer our lives to you, we offer our hearts to you.

Thank you for loving us always.
You are the God of second chances.
We ask that you share your grace and love with ___
As your children, we use the words your Son taught us,
“Our Father…”
