Purpose: To let go so that we can experience grace more fully.
Oh God, by whom we are guided in judgment,
and who raises up for us light in the darkness
Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties,
the grace to ask what you would have us do;
That your spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices,
and in your straight path we may not stumble;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
