The way of grace, a prayer

Loving and creative God,

in these days of division and fear,

teach me to love, to love

not only those I find easy to love,

but to push beyond my own prejudices

to love those I deem unlovable and unworthy,

to dare to trust that there are no barriers

to loves true reach.


Peaceful and Holy God,

in these days of violence and hatred,

teach me the way of peace,

not a false peace of quiet and tranquility,

but of a deep and abiding peace,

a peace that pushes me to action

to resist evil,

to speak up for good.


Just and merciful God,

in these days of half truths and lies,

teach me the way of truth,

not a brittle or broken truth,

but the truth that leads to a spacious gracious place

the truth

where love, peace, justice

and mercy dwell.


Loving, creative, peaceful, holy,

just and merciful God,

teach me the way

of grace.



About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
