You are with me each day as I try to follow you.
Sometimes I work hard at living in the ways you intend,
loving my neighbor, respecting myself, honoring you.
Other times I forget to follow you, or don’t try at all.
And yet, you love me still.
I am grateful for your forgiveness, your generosity and your second chances.
Help me to accept and be comforted by these signs of your grace.
Help me to try again when I fail (or abandon the attempt) to follow you.
Help me to move closer to you, and to see your love for the people and world around me.
