A Prayer Prompted by God’s Gift of His Son

Heavenly Father,

You have given us more than we could ever repay.  You have put us eternally in your debt by sending your Son Jesus to live a real human life and to die a very human death for our sins.

We thank you for his humility, and the fact that he would be born as any normal human child and grow up through his teen years into adulthood like any other human being.

And we thank you for your salvation.

As the psalmist asks, what can we give you for all these benefits that you have given us?

We will receive the gift, receive your salvation and receive the free gift of eternal life.

Help us to live that life that we live completely for you, beginning now but lasting forever.

In Christ,

Amen.
