Rich Legacy

O Lord,

Thank you for my inheritance in you,

for showing me the new family I am grafted into,

with a rich legacy of faith, hope, courage, and devotion

in the midst of human weakness, frailty, and mistakes.

You so patiently explain

and carefully sort,

the threads of culture, tradition, history, and lineage

that you have lovingly woven together

and redeemed by your Spirit within me.

I’m a new creation, a child of God.

I thank you for the gifts and treasures

you’ve deposited in my spirit,

my blood, my culture, my people, and my life.

You make all things new.

Amen.
