Ephesians 2

Dear God of mercy,

You declare to us who we are by nature:
dead in trespasses and sins,
captive to evil power
children of wrath.
God, we recognize that these declarations are true for us.

By your mercy, you declare a wondrous new reality:
You are rich in mercy
You have a great love for us
You save us by your grace
You have placed us with Christ in the heavenly places.

You have created us for good works:
a new humanity,
a kingdom of peace,
members of your household,
a structure on a solid foundation
a temple fit for a dwelling place for God.

Blessed be God, the Father of Jesus Christ,
and our Father through Him.
