Grace to serve, grace to work, grace to “deal”, grace to hear, grace to trust,
grace to wait, grace to continue on…push on, or press on, rest…
all by grace alone.
In disciplines, we are graced.In your mercy, we are graced.
In our sleep, you grace us.
In our waking, you bless us.
Lord, help us move and work and wait on and trust the graces you give.
You give them so freely:
preparing us, resting us, moving us, helping us, guiding us–
even when we think we are too tired for “any of the above”, anymore.
Even when we are overwhelmed by the possibilities and the realities we’ve seen.
It’s your grace that really does care for, and refresh, and sustain us, and move us on.
I so depend on it, even as you keep me humble.
Protect us, Lord, and teach us.
We give glory and honor to you, in all things.
Thank you, Lord Jesus.
