Today's Prayer
Dear God, thank you for your abundant grace. If we lose our way, help us to find the path back to your love and forgiveness. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
