Father, your glory shows your nature. Although we get only a glimpse of your power and might, yet what we do see reflects your true self.

We also want others to see who we truly are as your children, as redeemed people, as saints concerned to do right, as those who reject evil and embrace righteousness.

We do not bend to worldly pressures, but we do desire, Father, to do all we can to please others, for their salvation, and to show ourselves a people desirous of good works and edifying words.

To that end, give us integrity of heart and wisdom in our dealings with others.
