Before (Pt. 1)
Help us face and deal with what is before us.
Don’t let us look away.
Don’t let us hope it will take care of itself.
Don’t let us assume somebody else with handle it.
Give us wisdom to see things as they are.
Give us grace to live into them.
Give us courage to do what must be done.
Help us face and deal with what is before us in ways
that demonstrate our love for you and for people.
