YOU ARE WONDERFULLY & BEAUTIFULLY MADE!
God of light and love, help us to see ourselves and one another as You see us and as You have created us - in Your likeness and image. Renew our minds and remove the shadows that seek to overshadow what Your word speaks about us as Your children. Thank You Lord for loving us the way You do and for considering us. In Jesus Name, Amen
