Gracious and merciful God, giver of gladness amidst the pain and struggles and labors of each day, and giver of hope amid all of life’s uncertainties, be with me now as I come to you in prayer.
When there are sorrows in my life, let me continue to praise you.
When there are losses in my life, help me still feel delight at the wonders of your world.
When I am acutely aware of my own failings, and the pain and evil which surround me, help me know your vast and awesome grace, and remind me of your promise of a better world to come – through your overwhelming love.
And when I am aware of the fullness of my blessings and the depth of the grace you have given me, then help me always to share your grace and blessings with others.
Keep me close to you, gracious God.  I pray in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
