Prayer for October 18: Please pray with me. God of grace, God of mercy, come to us. So often we want to be in charge of our lives, we would rather that you owe us something. Oh how we fear grace! We fear it because if grace is freely given, then we can’t control you. We can’t call in favors. We have no claim on you. Yet, that is exactly how it works. This is what it means to love. And you are love. Thank you. Amen.
