Almighty God, we must confess
your people are the least likely group
one would expect you to work through.
It’s as if you have chosen the second string
of the worst team
to start the Super Bowl.
We have no skill except what you have given us.
We have no wealth nor power apart from your grace.
All that we are and all that we have is simply a gift from you.
So keep us from pride.
Save us from the delusion that we have made our own living.
Receive our lives as a humble offering.
To you and you alone be all glory, honor and power.
In Jesus’ name,
