Pray

Dear God, you are amazing in Grace and power.

Sorry for not always doing the things that you have asked me to do, especially when it comes to accepting and loving others who are different to me. Please forgive me.

Thank you for the opportunities that you give me every day, to be able to go to... school/work… and to be able to live for you without fear.

Please help me to love others, to pray for them and learn how to love them more. Help me to trust in you and your amazing power every day.

In Jesus Name, amen.
