Lord Jesus, the story of your life is unfolding in the midst of my life. I am grateful. Grant me an open mind and receptive heart to listen for the life story one person today. Help me to be a person of grace and mercy as I listen for your Story to intersect with our lives. Because I seek to reflect your glory here on earth, shape me to be the person you would have me be, then join me with the chorus of others praising you. Amen.
