We worship before You Father God, as the all-wise Creator, the all-sufficient One, the One who made the heaven and the earth and all that is in it. We praise You for the honor of being made in Your very image and likeness. We were created for Your glory and to worship You. We thank You for the strengths and abilities You have given each us.
