You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self […];
to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self,
created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
(Ephesians 4:22-4; NIV).
1. Father God,
May constant prayer
Become our way of life.
May the search for peace and truth
Be our delight.
May our simple acts of care
Set hearts aflame.
May we spread your love,
So others bless your name.
