Although we know God instructs us to practice grace towards everyone, we continue to place barriers between our enemies and us. We pray God gives us the strength to show grace toward our enemies. Grace does not mean condoning actions that hurt others and ourselves but instead attempting understanding and reconciliation where possible. May we admit to our own vulnerabilities and commit to listening to those who disagree with us. Mainly, may we show grace by acknowledging the hollowness of our divides and the unity of all humanity.
