The way of grace, a prayer

Loving and creative God,

in these days of division and fear,

teach me to love, to love

not only those I find easy to love,

but to push beyond my own prejudices

to love those I deem unlovable and unworthy,

to dare to trust that there are no barriers

to loves true reach.

+

Peaceful and Holy God,

in these days of violence and hatred,

teach me the way of peace,

not a false peace of quiet and tranquility,

but of a deep and abiding peace,

a peace that pushes me to action

to resist evil,

to speak up for good.

+

Just and merciful God,

in these days of half truths and lies,

teach me the way of truth,

not a brittle or broken truth,

but the truth that leads to a spacious gracious place

the truth

where love, peace, justice

and mercy dwell.

+

Loving, creative, peaceful, holy,

just and merciful God,

teach me the way

of grace.

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
