#40WordPrayer on FAITH

For if Abraham was justified by works,
he has something to boast about,
but not before God.
— Romans 4:2

God, your grace is not extended to me

because of what I have achieved, what I have done,  or what I have said.

In fact, in spite of my thirst for wealth,

my actions that bring pain, and my words that inspire hate, you love me.

Amen.

Bruce Reyes-Chow

Cover 40 Days, 40 Prayers, 40 Words: Lenten Reflections for Everyday Life — Bruce Reyes-ChowReflection Excerpt . . .

Too often we do unto others the exact opposite of what we are promised by God: love, grace, and presence regardless of what is offered in return. While we should not remain in unhealthy or destructive relationships, we cannot fall into the trap that relationships are based on a currency of behavior. In the end, we must do our best to extend grace, love, and presence freely—even without a “please” or a “thank-you.”
