I will need grace today, O Lord--
Grace to remember that I am your beloved child;
Grace to remember that they are your beloved children.
Grace to know that all things work together;
Grace to know that it is not my place to know how.
Grace to be forgiven;
Grace to forgive.
Grace to trust;
Grace to be trustworthy.
Grace to know that nothing matters;
Grace to know that everything matters.
Grace to be of earth and of heaven;
Grace to live so that at the end of the day it matters little in which I find myself.
