Prayer based on Luke 6:4. Themes: Obedience, Mercy, Authority

Dear God, we come before you humbly and ask for your forgiveness for the times when we have taken what is not rightfully ours. We pray that you help us to always remember to honor your laws and to respect your holy places. May we never forget the importance of obedience and reverence in our relationship with you. We ask for your guidance and strength to resist temptation and to always do what is right in your eyes. Thank you for your mercy and grace, and for the privilege of being able to come before you in prayer. Amen.
