“Graceful God, we struggle at times when we feel we cannot pass on your grace as you have called us to do. When we are most in need of your grace, please help others to show your love and kindness toward us. Help us also to remember that to whom much is given, much is expected. Help us to be instruments of healing and reconciliation and grace in a world that needs it so desperately. Amen.”
