Jesus give me the grace to remember,
“all is gift, all is grace”
I often expect you to intervene
and give me what I want.
Instead rightfully and correctly
You provide me with what I need.
I pray for peace and quiet
to listen intently.
I get a cacophony of distractions
that I must hear.
I pray for affirmation
to assure confidence.
I get challenged to amend
that makes me change.
I pray for harmony
to be happy and satisfied
I get unintended consequence
that requires relentless perseverance
I pray for restoration
to serve the greater good.
I get confronted with the common good
that creates community.
I humbly accept these answers with gratitude
I enjoy your gifts and grace
