Holy God—Father, Son, and Spirit,
it is too easy for your people to talk about you without worshiping you,
to worship you without obeying you, and to obey you without joy.
Infuse us with such passion for you that our words become worship,
our desires become obedience,
and our lives reveal the joy that can be found only in you. Amen.

Maker of heaven and earth,
as you rescued Daniel from the lions, protect us from the evil that would consume us.
As you saved Noah from the flood, keep us from drowning in trouble.
You have freed us from the power of sin, blessed the work of our minds and hands,
and given us eternal life—all through Jesus Christ.
We praise and thank you, now and always. Amen.
