Father, reshape us from all the ways we have been misshaped.  Restore unto us the years the locusts have eaten.  Shape us in the image in which we were created, even the image of your Eternal Son, our Lord Jesus Messiah.  We give You glory for the grace and sacrifice that makes this possible.  May we ever glorify You in all we do throughout our lives.  Having been reshaped in Your image, may we be living reminders of You to Your creation.  Amen!

 “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:15-17 (NRSV)
