Baby steps to Grace

Prayer of thanksgiving from Roots on the Web:

We thank you, Lord, for the journeys of healing you take us all on.

Whether we begin with baby steps or great strides, thank you for walking with us at the pace we can cope with.

We thank you for your healing peace on those fleeing conflict in this damaged world.

We thank you for your healing presence when illness and brokenness drive us into solitary places, physically or mentally.

We thank you for your healing strength in times of stress, or when we feel vulnerable and in need of support.

What a transformation you bring about in us, Lord, radiating from the inside out; you offer us many blankets of blessing.

And thank you for the opportunities to share the story of your healing with those who only know us healed.

Our hearts swell with thankfulness and joy for all your blessings. Amen.
