Additional Prayers

A Prayer of Acclamation and Thanksgiving
Loving God, you gave the righteousness of Christ to cloak us. You wanted to warm us in a world grown chilly from our sin. You wanted to remove our sins from view, to clothe our nakedness, to ease our shame, to celebrate us as your loved sons and daughters. And so we give you hearty thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
— Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
