While we make plans for the future, O God, the truth is that we really don’t know what lies beyond this moment.
Chances are good that more life lies beyond this moment.
It’s absolutely certain that death lies somewhere beyond this moment.
By your grace we know that beyond the moment of our death lies more life.
So help us to trust you both in this moment and for whatever lies beyond it, since it is only by your grace that we experience it and it is only in your grace that we live fully in it.
