O Lord, today we will at times likely find ourselves caught
between the good and the better,
between who we are and who we are trying to become,
between what we know we want and what we suspect you want,
between involvement and apathy,
between knowledge and ignorance,
between acceptance and prejudice,
between a rock and a hard place, and
between our location and our destination.
Give us the insight to know where we are at any given moment and in which direction we need in that moment to move; then give us the grace and the courage to take at least a small step in that direction.
