A Prayer for Monday, January 4, 2010

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.

A well-worded prayer and one that all of us should be able to pray with earnest conviction.
