A Collect of Thanks for God’s Grace

God Almighty, who alone bears the authority to judge the nations, we are humbled by the grace you grant us, the favor that you give, though we do not deserve it. Grant that we would be changed by that grace, able to one day reflect your glory back into all that you have made, through Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have access to you and the Holy Spirit, one God in perfect unity. Amen. ‘Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.’ – Rom. 5:1-2
