Ephesians 5:1-6

Loving Divine Family,

We gather at Ebenezer, your Stone of Help. You gave your promise to our ancestors, which still lives in us. You have shown your love and mercy and provided guidance, so we can sojourn in a good way.

Our eyes are on you, watching you, and wanting to be like you. Thank you, Divine Family, for your extravagant love. Thank you for showing us how to love, which leads to health, life, and healing.

I remember your love, mercy, and guidance today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Place us in pleasant pastures, so we will feel your peace around us. Fill us with your assurance, so we will faithfully follow you all our days.

With joy we praise you!
