Day 7 of each week is a “Grace Day.” We invite you to pray the prayer provided and use today to rest and review any days that you may have missed.
Lord Jesus, saying the word courage makes me feel strong. It makes me want to be brave. But, when I’m honest with you and with myself, it’s hard.
I know you never promised following you would be easy. I simply ask for the wisdom to recall the myths I’ve learned this week and to seek to follow you as a wholehearted disciple.
I want to follow you, Lord. And I know that requires courage. Help me to rest this day in the promise of your grace, trusting each day I can become more of the person you created me to be.
When I screw it up, remind me to return to you and the person I’ve wronged. And then, help me not to beat myself up over my imperfections.
Thank you, Jesus, for meeting me where I am and loving me for who I am. Your love overwhelms me each and every day. Amen.
Take an opportunity to review any of the days you missed.
