Reformation Day Prayer

God of grace,

On the door of the church,
Luther proclaimed his message,

“The true treasure of the church
is the most holy gospel
of the glory and grace of God.”

A treasure too great
to be kept to ourselves,
yet why is that
we who have received
so much grace somehow
seem to have so little
left to offer?

Forgive me, Lord,
and let me never again
confuse your river of grace
with the cesspool of
my self-righteousness.

Amen
