God of love, the gift of your Son extended grace and mercy to all those in need.
Remind me this day and always that Jesus’ death is not just for me, but for everyone.
Let me live every day, extending grace to those I fear, disagree with, or don’t understand.
Help me to see your face in each of their faces. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Joanna Miller (Zion Lutheran Church & St. James Lutheran Church in Philipsburg, ON & Baden, ON) for contributing this week’s prayer.
