Prayer: God of grace and mercy we thank you for saving us. Your righteousness is more then we can understand. We are sinners who do not deserve your forgiveness. Thank you for sending your son, Christ Jesus, to redeem us. May our lives be faith filled. Amen.

Reflection: Amazing Grace is one of my favorite hymns. God saves every one of us with his amazing grace. We are truly saved by having faith in Jesus. We cannot do anything to save ourselves. It is a gift from God. We all are sinners who go through life with many struggles and troubles. Temptations are all around us and we do not always do the right thing. Pairing the hymn with these verses give me hope and a peace that all will be alright with God. God forgives us and we can go on living each day believing in his Amazing Grace. --Charlene Rineer
