I am yours (1 Peter 2:9-12)


Lord,

It is a wonder to me that I am yours
                Part of a chosen people
                One of a royal priesthood
                A citizen of a holy nation
                A member of a people belonging to you

Let me declare with joy and confidence the praises of you who called me out of darkness into your marvellous light.

Once I was in darkness, now I am in light
Once I was not part of a people, not I am one of the people of God
Once I had not received mercy, now I have received mercy
Thank you gracious and wonderful Lord

Because I am one of your people, help me to live that way Lord
                Help me to remember I am a stranger in the world
                Help me to flee & abstain from sinful desires
                Help me to live such a good life amongst unbelievers that they may come  
                to glorify you

Thank you for making me one of your own.

Amen
