Forgiving and loving God, you have saved us by your grace by faith. We cannot boast of anything that we have done to earn your love, your forgiveness and your mercy. You have made us your children through Christ Jesus. We pray that your Holy Spirit will lead us this day to help others come to know your grace and forgiveness through our interactions with all those we meet. Be our guide and our light in the world today. Through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, we pray. Amen.
