I praise you for leaving your throne,
the heavens that are your home
dwelling in beloved unity with the Father and Spirit,
to come down and save the world.
Thank you for your heart,
open, exposed, vulnerable,
loving as only the Son of God,
Son of Man can love
in mercy, truth, grace, and power,
holy, right, and true,
never looking away or holding back.
You are the Messiah,
promised through the Jewish people
to be the Savior of the whole world.
I praise you that you made the way,
reached down for me,
washed me clean by your blood
to be able to approach you
and come near to you.
Thank you that you are approachable,
gentle and humble in heart,
and your yoke is easy and burden light.
I praise you for breaking
the heavy, oppressive yoke of the world upon my back,
filling me with dread and anxiety,
Let it be so Lord,
that your joy would forever be my strength,
that my food would be to do your will,
and that I would discern and delight
to do the work you’ve prepared in advance for me to do.
and accomplish your work,
to shine your light,
to be a conduit of your blessing.
I praise you for life abundant in you.
I bless you Lord.
