Lord you deliver me time after time
from my weakness and sinful deeds.
Sometimes I judge too quickly
and disregard the feelings of others.
Then I realize that you Lord can bring good
out of my misdeeds.
I can see that you are purifying me
and helping me realize how much I depend
on your gift of grace and forgiveness.
Help me to bring your peace and compassion
to those I will interact with today.
