Holy God, three in one.
Give me your perspective as I wash these clothes.
Thank you for providing the clothes that we wear
and for all the resources
and technology we use to wash them.
Help us to remember all the skill and effort of the people
who designed and assembled these garments.
Bless them, wherever they may be.
Make us more like you.
Give me your humility as I serve my loved ones.
May we find our identity in you and not in these clothes.
Help us to be good stewards of what you’ve given us,
but not to treasure them beyond their purpose.
Use this task to remind me that you’re continually
cleansing me and my loved ones.
Prepare us for tomorrow as we put on our clean clothes,
that we may have a fresh start to serve and honor you.
