Prayer for March 5

Prayer for March 5: Please pray with me.  God of grace, oh how we try to have it both ways.  We claim to not want free handouts, yet we also claim to believe in grace.  Oh how we cling to the idea of karma – getting what we deserve.  It just fits our human definition of justice.  It’s satisfying.  It makes room for violence.  And it goes against everything you stand for.  You are a God of grace – a divine free handout that we don’t earn.  Grace is receiving what we don’t deserve and not getting what we do deserve.  God of grace, thank you.  Send us out with your grace – to share it with others.  Amen.
