Titus 3

Father God,
it would seem to go without saying that we should live a godly life with Jesus as motivator and model. However, judging from the letters in the New Testament, and looking honestly at our own lives, we need reminding often.

We acknowledge and confess that sinful pleasures continue to appeal to us, and living a godly life continues to be a challenge for us.

And so we rejoice in the appearing of your goodness and kindness, O God our Savior!

We know we are not saved through our own efforts, or works of righteousness, but according to your mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.

We express our gratitude that you pour out your Holy Spirit richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by your grace, we become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Help us to devote ourselves to good works which are excellent and profitable to everyone.
Your grace be with all of us.
