looking back

Our God,
We remember now those in our past
who continue to shape us in significant ways.

As those who look back
to live fully and abundantly into our present,
we look back not just to Jesus—
nor to just the heroes of our faith throughout history,
but to our own teachers and mentors in the faith—
our own friends and family—those loved ones who inspired us
by example and with encouragement.

We are grateful,
and we humbly pray to live
that as we look back on others,
others might look back on us,

in the name of the one we all look back to,
amen.
