Join us on Sunday for worship at 11:00 a.m.
Gracious God, if stumbling is a characteristic of being a Gentile, then I have found my people. I stumble over conversations when I don’t have the right word to offer. I stumble because I have too many of my own burdens that I still refuse to leave at your feet. And I stumble over my eagerness that is more devoted to being seen as helpful than to actually helping. I’m just another clumsy servant that you tolerate.
It was by grace that you forgave my sins and gave me a role in your mission. And it is certainly by grace that you use even my failures to fulfill your ministry of grace in the world.
I do not ask to stop stumbling, which is what we creatures do. I ask only that you never run out of grace to redeem my failures. Amen.
