Galatians 4

Dear Father God,
Just as we human parents embrace our children
even before they know we are there for them and love them,
so you embrace us and send your Spirit into our hearts,
so that we may be identified as your sons and daughters.

Your wondrous gift to us is this:
in the right time
you sent your Son to us
born of a woman
born under the law
to redeem us who were under the law,
and so we receive
adoption as children.

Therefore we now have the unspeakable privilege
of calling you “Abba, Father.”
Now we know who you are,
and who we are:
we are yours,
you are ours
we are your heirs,
heirs of the kingdom!

Glory to you, Triune God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
