From The Daily Office …
A Collect for Grace
“Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us in safety to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
And a Collect from me., (if you’re willing to indulge me.)
Father, Grant grace to us
Grace to the children who need to be seen, heard, valued, and protected
Grace to all the Parents who need wisdom and rest,
Grace to the Grandparents who just want to be remembered in the midst of busy modern life
Grace to know when to speak and when to stay silent
Grace for our weary souls, and Grace to offer our fellow wanderers
Grace to cover the tiny annoyances , Grace to cover the straw that is about to break our backs
Grace to smooth over misunderstandings
Grace to speak the truth in love, even when it hurts
Grant us Grace. Your unfailing Grace.
In Your Son’s precious Name we ask . Amen.
